New build garden transformation, Exeter

This project was the design and build of a garden on a new build site in Exeter.  The client brief was to give the garden some interest whilst increasing the patio area and including an additional seating area that made the most of the sun. They also wanted to retain some lawn whilst creating as much space as possible for planting, and including an area for the bins.

The design incorporated a curved sandstone patio area with a low retaining wall to accommodate the change in levels, and a central circular lawn encompassed by a brick path that provided access to the patio, seating area and planting beds. An area was created with a trellis screen to hide the bins, the lawn area was seeded and the beds prepared ready for the client to plant out.

The use of curves and circles helped to create greater interest within this square plot, softening the lines and giving a greater sense of space.

“From their comprehensive design to completion of the project, Green Man Gardens carried out all the necessary work conscientiously, with the minimum of disruption and with great attention to detail. Highly recommended.”
