Back to Gardens Back to Gardens Back to Gardens Clayton - A Sheltered Patio
The brief for this garden included a sheltered space for outdoor dining, ease of maintenance with scope to develop the planting, and a request to recycle some materials/plants from a relatives garden for sentimental reasons.

Within a strongly geometric plan, the former was achieved by creating a sunken sandstone seating area enclosed by a low brick wall.  Whilst providing a level of shelter and privacy, it also gave some relief and interest to an otherwise flat space.
