Terraced garden with informal planting

A new garden for a family who, following a house renovation project, wanted to bring their garden back to life.  The steep levels made it difficult to use and they wanted to open up the space to allow more light in.

Terracing the garden has made it much more usable and the decked terrace at the top of the garden not only provides a great place to sit, it also enhances the view from the house.

The amazing willow tree now takes centre stage with its weeping branches casting dappled shade on hot summer days.
