This is one of my current projects that is being built as I write. My clients wanted a front garden that provided them with plenty of space to park several vehicles but without having an in and out driveway. The design needed to be sympathetic to the traditional hung tiled house whilst incorporating some contemporary features, keeping as much lawn as possible with low maintenance and dealing with the several changes in levels.
I created a formal design based around two driveways on each side of the property providing parking for 5 to 6 vehicles. Pathways from each drive lead up via shallow steps to the main porch and front door which is flanked by two generous planting areas. An enclosed storage area for their rubbish has been included along with a large lawn area and hedging to the front providing privacy.
Keep watching for more photos as I have only posted the design and what it currently looks like.
