Archive – Family Garden with Levels
A large terrace near the house provides seating and dining area for at least 8 people. Steps link to a second circular terrace with a curved bench allowing a restful place to enjoy the drilled stone water feature in the centre. The children can also safely enjoy the water feature here. Steps continue to a lawned area and additional terrace with summerhouse in the sunniest part of the garden. From here the children’s’ trampoline can be observed. A ‘secret’ path from the play area leads back via steps to rejoin the main terrace. The rear kitchen door leads out onto a shady courtyard where a diagonal design makes use of available space and provides a dynamic link to the rest of the garden. Sliding doors to the family’s gym room can be fully opened to enjoy the courtyard while working out. Ornamental trees provide spring and autumn interest while the remaining planting is mixed with year round interest.
