Taking in the evening sun
I was asked to improve part of the garden which was under used, particularly as during the summer the early evening sun lights up this area. I thought this would be a fantastic place to relax in when returning home from work and chose to include a small amount of hard landscaping, some perennial planting and created an archway to introduce some height.
A bench was positioned to take advantage of the evening sun and the gravel and plants were chosen to provide a space which is calm and tranquil. The archway is not only used as a feature to add height, however, it is also used to grow sweet peas, providing a lovely aroma when walking through.
