The brief for this sloping site was for a contemporary garden, with low maintenance, a decking area for sitting and entertaining, level lawns and raised borders.

We terraced the garden using old railway sleepers, built a blockwork retaining wall, which was rendered and painted, then built a deck area level with the bottom of the patio doors.

The planting was mainly evergreen shrubs, and the whole planting area was covered with a weed  suppressing mulch.
