Summer Play

 

We were asked to design this small side garden by a charming couple to provide a safe space for their children, connected but contained from the other parts of the garden, an area that was previously a sloping border difficult to maintain, was transformed into a level play surface. The garden was terraced with retaining walls of timber sleepers, allowing space for fruit bushes and other edible plants that had previously languished in the shade. A small metal table and chairs provides a perfect place for eating.
