The small gardens of a contemporary terrace of townhouses, had been planned with low boundaries to keep an open feel and maintain the view of the woodland beyond. However privacy was an issue and this was compounded by the first floor balconies leading that overlooked the adjacent gardens.
The solution was to create vertical privacy using simple linear pergola structures integrated within raised beds, which in turn supported integral benches. Additional privacy was created with sympathetic use of battening screening to the side boundaries, combined with bamboo planting contained within raised beds. The lawn is given a defined shape and bordered with stone setts to maintain a perfect green element within the garden. Planting surrounds the lawn and visually breaks up the boundary fencing.
“We are extremely happy with our beautiful garden, we are delighted that we have gained so much privacy within such as contemporary design. It is wonderful to have had our requirements met so professionally.”
