Our Ingatestone client approached us looking for a complete garden transformation.

Discoloured, loose concrete slabs and muddy patches covered by temporary artificial grass rendered their space unusable.

The client brief included a new pergola to host the existing Wisteria, replacement fencing, a seating area to capture the evening sun and a strong emphasis on low-maintenance.

The solution involved a combination of porcelain paving in various colours to create zones, while NeoGrass artificial turf offers a lush, low-maintenance alternative to a traditional grass lawn.

The centrepiece of the garden is the custom-built seating that utilises a Western Red Cedar floating bench. Built-in planters were incorporated with space for aromatic herbs to provide an additional sensory experience. The positioning of the seating perfectly captures the evening sun, ideal for relaxing or entertaining.

A timber pergola adds a touch of rustic charm and provides a framework to allow the Wisteria to continue to develop.

The result is a beautiful and low-maintenance outdoor space perfect for relaxation.
