Case Studies

Manchester Garden
Before and After

The sketches here show the potential of this long and narrow semi-detached Manchester garden.

By dividing the garden into 3 distinct areas it makes the plot feel larger yet more intimate. The proposed screening of cherry trees takes the eye away from the  fence and masks the neighbouring property. The addition of the raised terrace extends the living space from the house, drawing it into the garden.

The circular lawn edged in brick paviors and  surrounded by soft herbaceous planting  is an ideal space for summer outdoor entertaining. The steps up to the house and the columnar juniper trees either side, lead the eye to the most imposing part of the house, enhancing its features.
