Terraced garden, Cheshire
A relatively wide plot but the only useable level space for seating was in the shade, and the sunniest area of the garden was a slope with a stepped level change between - not to mention the large retaining boulders that had been installed by the developers 15+ years ago.
We created a design that makes the best of the sunshine, and also creates a better visual and physical connectivity between the different heights within the garden. We have achieved this by using key accent plants to create repetition, widening the appearance of the steps to draw the eye to the higher level, as well as creating a an extra level to ensure the new seating area sits within the design rather than 'on top of'.
The planting was completed in February 2020, and has established beautifully over the summer.
