A modern space to retire in..

OX Garden Design was commissioned to design a modern private garden in Oxford.

The brief was to improve the access from the house to the garden, and modernise the terrace space for entertaining.

The previous layout had multiple steps from the patio doors and further steps into the garden, this effectively meant that half the terrace could be used for entertaining.

The solution was to build a deck at the level of the patio doors, this gave an inside/out feel and meant the whole terrace could be utilised for entertaining. The steps in to the garden were demolished and replaced with a short staircase.

The addition of a stainless steel balustrade brings a modern continental feel to the terrace as well as improving safety.

The uneven lower garden was levelled and border size increased to provide year round plant interest. The client was very keen to have flowers and greenery through all seasons.

The construction of the garden was undertaken by Abreu Landscapes in Haddenham.
