A traditional garden terrace in Hertfordshire
“This elegant formal garden design complements this Hertfordshire home beautifully”
The garden design brief
Before this garden transformation the space was occupied by two huge concrete ponds that were leaking. The owners decided it was time for a change and being keen gardeners wanted to make best use of the space and introduce new planting.
We spent days drilling concrete to remove the ponds and make space for our new design for a formal traditional terrace. The end result was well worth the effort.
“The sundial with traditional rose arch beyond provides the perfect focal point”
“Traditional English planting softens the hard landscaping”
The garden construction materials and planting
A brick circle with matching sundial leading to a rose arch provides the perfect focal point from the house. Surrounded by light, tumbled sandstone the terrace has a worn traditional look with a beautiful variation in colour typical of most sandstones.
Framed by traditional planting that is lit at night, this traditional English garden terrace provides plenty of planting space to occupy the owners’ passion for plants.
