A small contemporary garden using complementary shapes
For this small back garden, we created a feature of staggered stepping-stones which bisect it diagonally and create an illusion of greater width to the space. Buff porcelain paving adjacent to the rear of the house provides a comfortable dining area, while angular, softly-planted beds complement the hard landscaping.
The porcelain steps set in gravel lead to a decked seating area at the rear, with the boards laid at opposing angles to create interest. Around the firepit, a floating bench provides the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the garden. Meanwhile, the feature lighting nestled in the beds illuminates the planting and gives a beautiful effect during the hours of darkness.
