A Relaxing Garden in Dunblane

Wednesday, 09 June 2021

Our clients asked us to redesign their garden and wanted to get rid of their old decking and create a seating area in the sunniest corner of the garden. The rear boundary needed to be unified and made more appealing and new paths and planting was a must. With design tools at the ready, we set about creating a relaxing garden in Dunblane!

 

Before – an unappealing back garden

After – the garden has been transformed

The clients were adding a new contemporary extension to the house and wanted a beautiful garden to look out onto and enjoy. Existing trees were kept and new planting added to provide year round interest. The “utility” area was revamped with new veg beds, paving and gravel.

The new extension

The new paths and patio were created using a beautiful golden sandstone edged in setts. Chunky timber sleepers were used as a retaining wall in order to create a flatter lawn area and step down to the new patio.

A beautiful array of planting provides year round interest, attracts wildlife, provides scent as you relax in the sunshine and softens the hard landscaping.

Where the old deck was, new lawn and planting was added. A new horizontally slatted fence at the bottom of the garden unifies this are and provides a backdrop to the new planting.
