A dramatic contemporary rear garden with swimming pool and bespoke pergola

This stunning rear garden design successfully addresses the practical requirements of the swimming pool by using contemporary porcelain paving laid at an angle to the house. This also provides space for seating and relaxation, with a modern bespoke pergola giving shade and protection for the barbecue area, creating a sense of a room within the garden.

A porcelain path leads away from the patio, flanking the lawn and softly planted border, and arrives at a secluded seating area at the rear. Here the circular paving creates a cosy and informal location to enjoy the firepit and views back up the garden towards the house.
