Directly outside the back door will be a porcelain paved patio running the width of the house. Positioned on a 45 degree angle to the house, the patio will be large enough to accommodate a table and chairs for alfresco dining. One side of the patio will be edged with flat top espalier trees to provide structure and offer shade on sunny days. Perpendicular to this will be a low hedge to. A wood effect porcelain plank pathway will lead down the garden to a hot tub in the bottom right hand of the corner.
Directly opposite this in the bottom left hand corner will be a smaller patio, on which an outdoor sofa and firepit could be placed. This patio will benefit from a chunky oak pergola overhead, to provide shade and a framework for climbers such as wisteria to grow. The centre of the space will contain an artificial lawn to provide low maintenance year-round colour.
