At this family house on the outskirts of town, the clients only used the garden as access to the vegetable patch and chickens at the far end of the plot. During the initial consultations the problem areas in the garden were discussed. They were a narrow path to the front door, not wide enough for two people to walk side by side; a long strip of unused grass at the side of the house, used only for access to the chickens; no area for family entertaining and a view of the ever growing number of family cars from the garden.

This shows the new layout at the front of the garden. The path is wider which is more in proportion with the house, there is a formal pond to view as you approach the front door and there is a pretty rose arch taking you down two steps to the lower lawn. The new curved wall gives you a view of the garden when you arrive but separates the cars from the entrance to the garden and house.

The long strip of grass down the side of the house was sloping and so it was decided to level both sections, with two steps coming from the front garden down to the lower lawn. The lower lawn has access from the house through French doors and is now used as a sunny secluded spot for family entertaining. This garden was constructed by Cotswold Estate and Gardens Ltd.
