Garden Re-Design (Landscaping)
We have started a garden refresh but don’t really know where to go from here. I am an engineer by trade (hence the poor spelling/grammar), so as long as somebody tells me what to do, I can normally find a way of doing it! I do however lack a bit of creativity, so I am hoping somebody can take as fresh look at things and give me some guidance. Here is what we have at the moment…
We are fairly happy with what we are doing on the south/east facing part. We are going to have a little courtyard type section. There will also be a raised border/bed to cover up some concrete fence stumps on the lower section of garden. The plan is to plant some trees in those raised beds for screening purposes.
The area that we need assistance on is the transition
from the back of the house to the lower section of garden (shown about by the
hatched lines). The slope is making things difficult. There is a
large amount of decking there at the moment. I think it makes sense to
keep decking there as you need something to step out onto (because of the
slope) and the sub-structure looks sound, but we are open to changing the shape of it.
Does anybody have any ideas on what we can do?
Some photos below showing the current mess. The conifer tree will be chopped down and a fence is being put up along the South/East border this week.
