Urban Family Spaces
You, your family and lifestyle, your house and surroundings largely dictate what your own personal space should become.
Whether your garden will be used for growing crops, entertaining, outdoor living, children’s play, or whatever – your outdoor environment is personal to you and important to us. On our first meeting with you we draw up a ‘Client Brief’ – a ‘Wish List’ of your priorities which forms a starting point on which to build your design. To begin your own project, email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Broken concrete has an interesting texture – a bit like peanut brittle or broken candy, we re-cycled an old concrete path and used the broken pieces to ‘face’ the gabion cages. This we topped with blue grass (still under construction)
A new family garden being enjoyed in it’s first year of planting. Box and yew hedging are robust choices for a child friendly garden.
An intimate dining area., This sunny secluded spot – surrounded by honeysuckle is accessed by a bridge over a stream.
This small town garden has been surrounded by raised beds to give the appearance of a sunken garden. A series of steps doubles as a waterfall so you need to dodge the water on the way up.

A formal garden in Alderley Edge
The cascading sound of water drowns out passing traffic noise in this suburban town garden. This spectacular fountain is a focal point for evening adult parties, and a source of fun for children who use the pool during the day.
