This garden is more than an outdoor living room; it also serves as a kitchen and dining area. The main central feature is the patio area with a bespoke L-shaped bench made of decking boards connected to wired timber posts. Edible plants such as tomatoes are dotted around in terracotta pots, and culinary herbs can be found in the borders and can be used during a BBQ party. The rest of the layout consists of raised beds using reclaimed oak sleepers and a quiet lounge corner with bamboo screening. The wooden panel fencing with climbers is half hidden by the shrub border.
“Edible plants are always good to have in a garden and they are making a come-back: a few tomatoes and herbs can look aesthetically appealing in pots while you can still eat them in your salad.”
