The clients were encumbered by 1950’s concrete and had a very tight budget, they also had a fast-approaching big birthday. The concrete foundations to an old garage were also a major problem that needed to be overcome. The defined lines between next door had long been rotted away and this was adding to the lack of privacy. They were keen to retain the character of the garden without the concrete and to add privacy.
Within the restraints of budget, the solution was to leave the concrete in-situ and to create a modern feel to the garden whilst retaining its 1950’s character. A natural stone paving was used to lead you from the garden doors onto a hardwood decking area, the raised deck covered the old garage foundation forming a large seating area. A complementing wooden fence was used to provide privacy between next door. The garage wall was trellised to help climbers get established.
The decking and new paving complemented each other and enabled the client to have new areas for enjoyment. The redesigned garden now gives the house another room for the client to enjoy.
