The Flat Lawn Is Laid copy _IGP7692 copy Water Features

BEFORE - The drop from patio to fence is about 3 metres

AFTER - The children have a level place to play

As garden designers we rarely get such a simple brief. Our clients wanted a garden design which would create a safe, flat area for their children to play.


A substantial retaining wall about 2.5 metres high was what was called for to level most of the garden.


Retaining walls, of any kind, are expensive but in this case a gabion wall proved the most cost effective.


The area below the gabions has been seeded with meadow grass and accommodates three small fruit trees (as well as a trampoline).
