Sloping Limestone Garden

Sloping Limestone Garden


This garden is north facing and very steep. It is approximately 660 m2 (30 x 22m) and bordered by hedges and trees on the west side, and has mature trees on the east side separating it from the remainder of the estate. The client wanted a series of level areas to enable them to use the area. This involved the creation of patios, the installation of a hot tub and fire pit, planting and borders. These are all linked with paths and steps, bordered by low dry stone retaining walls.


Requirements for the new garden design/landscape architecture:


  • Non-slip decking patio outside the first floor
  • Dining area with a stone built BBQ
  • Secluded wood fired hot tub
  • Fire pit
  • Rotary washing line
