Longthorpe, Peterborough

A young family living in a barn conversion needed a garden that had space for play, entertaining and relaxing.

The new design features a central, child-friendly water feature providing a focal point from both inside and outside. There is ample space for entertaining with a large terrace directly from the kitchen. Stepping stones lead through planting to a cosy seating space which opens out onto a curved lawn.

Clay brick pavers have been used alongside paving to produce a contemporary space that still sits comfortably with the traditional building. The planting combines year-round structure from evergreens and grasses with sculptural multi-stem trees and colourful summer perennials. Photos coming soon…
