Time for relaxation

Character Areas The clients viewed the garden as an extension to their home. When they had any leisure time, they liked to informally entertain family and friends and wanted to make use of the garden for this. They also wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the garden and to make the most of the tranquillity at quieter periods – a time to recharge their batteries. The children enjoyed playing in the garden and liked the idea of a jungle area and were particularly drawn to the wooded areas where they liked to hide.


Design Rules

  • Jungle style garden required beneath the canopy of trees at the end of the lawn;
  • Planting to look good all summer long in front and around the lounge area;
  • Roses to be included in some planting areas;
  • Create areas of tranquillity and rest.
