Garden, Reigate Heath

Softening a terrace in a woodland setting

This garden was surrounded by woodland. A garden room extension had been recently built to bring the garden into the house. I didn’t want the raised terrace to appear like a brick stage in this rural setting, so we faced the front raised wall with wood. Tall planting also served to soften it. This higher terrace led to a clay paviour lower terrace and two beds were built to the sides in order to bring the planting nearer to the house.
