A small back garden using angles for effect
The planks of the beautiful lower deck are set diagonally to the back of the house which creates a feeling of movement. Steps at the same angle lead up to the lawn, with part of the upper step forming one side of a small square patio with floating benches and specially chosen mosaic tiles. The result is ample space for a barbecue and seating, with the angles of the deck and patio juxtaposed to pleasant effect.
At the back, we created a secluded dining area under a light pergola adorned with long-flowering clematis. Mosaic tiles were again used for the floor, echoing those used for the patio.
In the borders, we planted lush and free-growing grasses and shrubs to provide structure, with a minimal colour scheme of green, lime and white.
