Sunny back garden for a young family

This garden has been designed to complement the new kitchen extension, maximise the views through the enormous glass doors and make life simple and easy for this young family.

Raised beds, cantilevered seating, lighting, lawn, sandpit and woodland area have all been accommodated to give lots of interest year round. The planting is predominantly flowering perennials complemented by evergreen climbers. Space is in short supply and all the plants have to work hard to provide a stimulating environment for little ones. A grey porcelain patio and grey walls to the raised bed bring out the green of the grass and plants. Verbena, Iris, Geranium and Gaura add mauve and blue tones to blend with the grey and attract lots of wildlife for the children to watch and enjoy.
