The BriefWe had a pretty boring garden with an irregular shaped lawn and a horrible patio, but with the significant constraint of some very large trees making most of the garden very shady and a son who loves football and plays every day in the garden. Being a designer obviously I wanted to make it more interesting!
Feature orange walls create the interest while not impinging too much on the lawn which was straightened up to make a more contemporary rectangle. A new patio in a beautiful Donegal quartzite was expertly laid using narrower size slabs on the edges working towards wider slabs in the centre. The stone walling strip in the walls is made of the same stone.
The walls retain the flexibility to be painted a different colour if I ever get bored of the orange!
