Chill-out garden, Amersham


The main requirement for this family garden in Amersham, South Bucks was to transform it into a garden that could be enjoyed by all the family by day and be a place for outdoor dining and entertaining by night. Two existing brick walls were renovated with patterned ceramic tiles to create two feature walls. These act as both focal points and zone the areas closest to the house. The main dining patio and built-in BBQ area features limestone paving and grey sandstone setts while a deck area takes advantage of the latest composite decking to create a low-maintenance chill-out zone with lounge-style furniture.

A stepping stone path leads to a newly installed contemporary garden studio. Tall specimen trees provide screening from neighbouring buildings. Garden lighting was installed to add mood and drama and extend the use of the garden into the evening, as well as highlight key garden elements such as architectural planting, feature walls, paving, paths and seating areas.
