The original garden was overgrown and not used at all by the property owners. The new garden was designed to be family friendly but contemporary and modern at the same time. The garden includes bespoke printed porcelain paving, cedar batten fencing, seating area and encaustic tile detail to liven up the old steps by the house. The garden is now light welcoming and used by the property owners and their children on a daily basis.
