Modernising A Classic

A classic Georgian House in Bath. Original features dominate the garden but the client wanted a cost-effective modern solution to terracing within the space. Heavily constructed sleeper walls retain the banks contrasting with the original features and perennial planting with grasses adds a new modern dimension. The Upper terrace has also been replanted with cobbles and pebbles adding texture to the scheme.

Project Cost: £10,001 - £25,000

 Sleepers form a strong line and contrasting colour from the original garden features. Variegated Hakonechloa grasses and deep purple salvia blooms form a string band across the space.

 The natural colour of the wood brings an additional feature to the space.

 The backdrop of climbing roses, phormiums and day lilies only further enhances the scheme.
