I was initially approached by The Client early in 2012 after they picked up one of my flyers in a local shop.

The Client was a young family who owned a local quality butcher's shop and had struggled to find an affordable local Garden Designer/Contractor who could also design an Outdoor-Room to match their own contemporary Interior Design scheme.

Upon visiting my website and meeting me in person, they liked my design style/approach to the Project and initially commissioned me to design the rear garden of their property.

The garden was pretty much un-touched since the property was build some 5 years ago and featured some very tall Scots Pine trees on the rear boundary, a main sloping lawned area and token area of paving near the building's rear elevation.

My Design Proposal comprised of creating a large Indian Sandstone terrace with an over-head timber pergola leading on to a new edged lawn with all-year-round-interest planting to the boundary. All existing and new timber was also going to be painted black to match the existing ship-lap cladding on the garage (which was also going to be enlarged by means of a large, lean-to shed).

Upon the signing off of my design, a local Landscape Contractor was appointed to undertake clearance works, construct the patio/pergola/shed and lay the new lawn as per the plan.

Upon completion of these works during early Summer 2012 and subsequent painting of the timber-work, I was again brought in to undertake the planting works and to gravel/mulch the beds.

All works were completed on-site mid Summer 2012.

Being a butcher, The Client regularly uses the garden for alfresco dining and entertaining and "loves" it's new appearance/functions.
