An impressive sandstone terrace for a large rear garden
For this sizeable rear garden we designed a stunning terrace of sandstone tiles, with a circular central feature of granite blocks and a complementary timber bench. Curved raised beds planted with striking half-standard erybotria trees, perennials and grasses embrace the terrace on both sides, and sweep through to the shady garden and lawn. The perimeter beds are planted with conical copper beech trees and an array of beautiful shade-tolerant evergreen shrubs and flowering perennials. The terrace also extends to the side of the house to form a smart outdoor dining area.
