Basil’s garden


Client brief:

Create a deck area to extend the living space from the ‘Terrazza’ steel framed veranda to the back of the house, create a garden retreat at the other end of the garden.

My clients had their hearts set on a Millboard (composite) deck, which, with their flexi-edging allowed me to design the deck with flowing curves to soften the impact against the lawn. The porcelain planks created a more naturalist coastal feel, which we enhanced by adding vertical oak beams to add climbing plants and string lighting. Porcelain in a design always adds a sleek sophisticated look, but these porcelain planks really do add a ‘wow’ factor. The porcelain planks are from the ‘Albero’ range, colour ‘Silvered’ supplied by The Rockery Centre in Sandy, manufactured by Global Stone.

Basil, my client’s Dachshund loves being outside in the garden strolling across the pebbles and mingling with the ornamental grasses. You can see just how curious Basil is on my Youtube channel.
