The clients wanted to maximise the space of the side return and bring some pops of colour into the garden to match the new housing development that was under construction towering over this plot which was painted with deep earthy reds and oranges.

Tonne after tonne of concrete had to be excavated from the existing side return, replaced with the smooth polished sandstone paving. The planters were painted with a deep red and we decided to keep the old corrugated fence as it brought an interesting texture to the garden. A beautiful floating bench was constructed from iroko.
