A neglected corner of this family garden was transformed with a new patio to provide space for sun loungers. This is the part of the garden which catches the evening light yet previously had served as a composting area. Reed screens were added to provide a backdrop to the new evergreen hedge in the form of Photinia “Red Robin”. The existing patio was jet-washed and re-pointed to refresh its look. A small amount of new planting was added to provide a longer season of flowers in hot colours, as well as some scent and movement in the form of lavender and stipa tenuissima.
