Enabling full and safe access to the garden
Site: A large, mature garden surrounding a 1930s detached house in Dorridge.
Brief: The client’s needs were changing due to reduced mobility and she was no longer able to access or maintain parts of the garden as she wished. My brief was to make the garden safe and accessible.
For the main structure of the garden I created a brick path which wraps around the garden to allow access throughout. At the same time I re-modelled the terrace, removing steps and adding ramps and non-slip materials. This provided a good framework for access, as well as numerous planting pockets.
My client is now delighted that she can use her garden to its full extent again. With the framework provided she has been able to access the garden and replant it to her own specification, using her favourite plants.
