A modern family garden in Surrey.
This garden was a tale of 2 halves with an existing large terrace at the rear of the property and a large lawn on the lower level accessible only by steep steps.
The clients brief was short and succinct; to create a modern garden for entertainment but not to exclude the children!
A split level terrace addressed the issue of height, staggering the decent from the house to the lawn, while providing multiple spaces for entertaining, taking advantage of access to the house in difference locations and a mixture of sunny and shady spots. The children's needs where then addressed and mixed into the hard landscaping elements of the garden.
What outwardly looks like a clean, contemporary and modern garden is also a place for children to play. The central feature on the main terrace is the heated plunge pool primarily for the children, followed by a feature concrete wall at the end of the garden. This feature wall doubles up as a focal point and houses a frame for an ariel hoop and trapeze for the children. A large area of lawn was retained along with football nets.
The perfect balance for a garden fit to entertain adults and children alike.
