Project: The sunken garden
This garden located in Lanchester, County Durham was severely overgrown and consequently very gloomy. The existing patio had seen better days and was not in the right place to enjoy the majority of the sun. The clients wanted a more open garden with plenty of space for planting, somewhere to enjoy the sun and to incorporate a shed and greenhouse.
The garden naturally fell away to the right so a circular sunken garden was suggested as a sitting area. The curves from this were then replicated for the paths to the greenhouse and shed. A curved dwarf stone wall was installed to deal with the slope and allow for a flat lawn area to the side of the greenhouse.
