They had begun to decorate their lounge in a New England style theme and wanted to extend the colour scheme and ideas into the outdoor space.
A decking board walk runs diagonally through the space alongside a raised herb bed and a pebble rill fed from a copper pipe water spout. This spout is mounted on a raised bed wall which defines the seating area and creates an intimate and yet spacious dining area. This area is laid with ‘wave’ paving and includes a railway sleeper bed with a painted strip in a red accent colour. Seating is provided by railway sleeper stools and table constructed from sleepers which have been left to weather as much as possible to create a driftwood effect. A shade sail over the area enhances the seaside theme.
A second patio constructed from wave paving interspersed with sandstone setts and blue glass mulch offers could accommodate several sun loungers. Landscape poles stung with knotted rope help to define the space. Planting will follow a seascape theme, with verbena, grasses and phormium taking precedence. A small area of paving in the back right hand corner offers an entrance to the existing shed painted in seagrass tones.
