The Lawn Garden is the area immediately to the rear of our house, visible the moment you look out of the back . It was the last area of the garden to be completed. There were several reasons for this, but the main one was we were waiting to put an extension on the back of the house. Once that was completed I was faced with quite a challenge: coming up with a design that unified the existing structures – the greenhouse, workshop and vegetable garden with its brick paving – and that looked good from inside as this is the area we would be looking at every day.
The final design came together slowly and with many abortive attempts, but once it was right I knew it was right. Everything made sense and there were no compromises:
Here is a whole-garden view of the finished result:
