Our clients wanted a ‘break’ between the deck and the rest of the garden to create a ‘room’ feel to the deck area. A place to entertain and relax.
To create a subtle distinction between the two garden areas, we suggested two treated timber raised beds with a framed top, finished in white. These act to frame the garden and decking areas in both directions and ensure they retain their own character and purpose.
The timber construction gave a lighter feel than brick or block and renders, eliminating the almost ‘barrier’ to the rest of the garden. In the same way, we kept the planting light by using a mixture of lavender, ornamental grasses, and a variety of flowering evergreen Hebes.
