Traditional garden, Henley-on-Thames


This large rear garden already benefitted from some mature structural planting in the form of ornamental cherry and apple trees however it lacked suitable terraced areas to sit out and enjoy the sun. The re-design created an enlarged L-shaped terrace providing two seating areas that make the most of the sun.

The borders nearest the house were extended to allow more planting to be introduced and an existing cherry tree was edged in sandstone setts to make it a main feature in the garden. An area to the side of the neighbour’s kiln house was transformed into an ornamental vegetable garden complete with timber sleeper raised beds. The vegetable garden is large enough to accommodate a table and chairs making for an additional spot where afternoon tea can be enjoyed at the sunniest time of the day.
