A new build plot with poor existing levels has been converted into a romantic terraced garden with hidden features and decorative touches at every turn. The natural finishes and colours of sawn mint sandstone, Oak sleepers and brick, to match the house, nestle seamlessly amongst the cottage style planting. A naturalistic pebble stream flows through the garden, cascading water over the brick retaining wall down into a formal pool in the lower seating terrace providing a ambience within the garden. At the side of the property, the nature takes over, leaving only a number of sawn steppingstones to provide a winding journey through the planting to a secluded fir pit area. This, along with other small seating spaces in the garden, is finished in a soft Cotswold chipping that will green with age.
