Family GardenRustic Garden, Hertfordshire

Our client’s garden was tired and neglected, full of children’s play equipment and a small area of block paving. They were keen to create a garden that provided interesting and varied play opportunities for their two children, whilst still retaining areas that could be enjoyed by the adults.

We removed the old garage, and the unattractive conifer hedge in the top corner of the garden. An area has been created for their son to kick his football, and this is framed by various climbing structures that in turn surround the trampoline area. Monkey bars double as a pergola, and in time planting will soften their appearance.

A small seating area has been created to capture the evening sun, whilst a generous patio has been built outside the kitchen. This is edged with chunky raised beds, planted with colourful and long-flowering perennials that will attract bees and butterflies throughout the summer. Some of the beds have been set aside for growing vegetables, and my client reports that they have enjoyed a healthy crop of tomatoes and salad leaves this summer!

New trees have been planted to provide screening, colour and berries for the birds.
