HOLSWORTHY ECO HOME

This high specification new build Eco home, with Sedum roof and solar panels, had the usual plain lawn garden left by the builders with some steps and a cheap handrail taking you up to the rising lawn. The space was also very narrow between the gabion wall and the house.
The clients travel quite frequently so wanted no lawn, minimal planting and lots of seating areas with a different feel to each. They like to entertain and also use a barbeque/smoker quite a lot.
I created four different areas using a variety of materials and levels with generous steps and substantial raised beds with built in seating. I also added an enclosed area built into one raised bed to house BBQ and cooking equipment. This also got its very own Sedum roof. The fencing was repaneled and the whole space now looks a great deal bigger.
All the stone from the original gabion wall was repurposed and dimable lighting makes it useable after dark for dinner parties and night time revels.
