A Garden on the Wirral
A garden on the Wirral was to be reimagined as a water garden with plenty of space for entertaining. The client was keen to have a number of pools to house koi carp and goldfish. The garden had become a narrow L-shape, reduced in size after the client had two large conservatories built along one side of the house. Our brief was to create an attractive entertaining space and incorporate two new pools, both of which the client wished to walk across.
The main entertaning space sits alongside the first conservatory, positioned to make the most of the available sunshine. Lighting plays an important part in this garden, extending time oustide well into the evening.
The first pool is adjacent to the main entertaining space and large 'stepping stones' are positioned to take the visitor across and over to the lawn.
The client is delighted with her new garden and has already filled her pools with fish. Let's hope the herons stay away!
We have used composite decking in a traditional oak finish to create all of the hard landscaping structure of the garden. Using the same material throughout links the two 'legs' of the L together and helps to make the space feel larger.
The lawn wraps around the corner of the building and around to the second water feature. The client wanted a change of level here so as you travel over the water to the main platform, you also step upwards at each new step. The finished design is clean and crisp, reflecting the elegant geometry of the house and conservatories.
