This is a back garden of a house in Felixstowe, Suffolk.

The client has limited mobility and I was asked to re-design the garden using low slip materials and no steps.

The client required a low maintenance garden with all year round interest,

a view from the house windows, somewhere shady

to sit and space for the

family to gather.

Local knapped flints with paving and

contrasting paviors were used to

compliment the house.

The new paths are wide for access and accent.

The random laid paving is interrupted with planted and filled squares to add interest.  All of the paving is of the same low slip material; the random paving is a darker colour than the formal laid paths.

At the side of the summer house a pergola was constructed using planed timber.  The roof spans are fairly close together so that they cast a lot of shade.
