The decked patio is an area for Al fresco dining and entertaining with colourful lanterns for mood lighting and a selection of terracotta pots with edible planting. The rendered wooden pergola above gives a perfect structure for the grapevine and to hang swings, hammocks and hanging pots for more kitchen herbs. The edible garden theme continues in the rest of the layout too: the Wendy house is half hidden in the border, giving a perfect area for the kids to play – and also has fish crates planted with some tomatoes on the roof.
“At the rear, there is a funky reclaimed brick outdoor office with a twig roof where we can work in peace while looking at the garden. It gives you great inspiration, when you can rest your eyes on something green.”
