Milltimber garden, February 2019
To create a contemporary garden space that will make for easier living with low maintenance, whilst providing a space that looks good and can be enjoyed.
There were a few desires that formed part of the brief:
- More parking
- Easy maintenance
- Nicer path leading to the back garden
- A larger patio area
- Furniture to make it easier to watch the children play
- A hot tub
Papillon re-designed the front garden and removed the grass altogether, making it easier to maintain. Doing this made way for a driveway extension, which now has space to park up to five cars.
To the rear of the property, we added Millboard decking, a sunken hot tub and constructed a modern cream and grey porcelain paving area, which runs along the length of the property. A bench will be added to the front of the house to make it easy to watch the kids.
Dry-river beds were planted throughout the garden and offer a modern look. They are easy on the eye with sporadic planting adding a pop of colour. This, along with the extended driveway, makes the garden low maintenance for the busy homeowners.
Dry-river beds were added to the boundaries of the garden with evergreen planting.
Papillon supplied and installed the following garden features:
- Hot tub
- New patio in porcelain paving
- Extended lock-block driveway
- Dry-river beds with planting
- Bench (to follow)
- Bollard lighting
A contemporary garden full of interest and ready for fun.
We have created a space that is manageable for our clients, with a design that makes for a relaxing atmosphere in a space where hobbies can be enjoyed, serenity can be found, and family memories created.
