Radiating vertical timber terraces with a circular sandstone patio at its centre.

We love sloping gardens! It gives us a chance to do something different, like these radiating timber terraces. This award winning garden (APL 2014) certainly has the wow factor, especially when viewed from the conservatory.

The client brief was for a low maintenance garden with a seating area in the lower corner, and of course a creative solution for the slope too! We designed and built a garden that radiates from a single point in the middle of the circular sandstone patio, much like water dropping in a lake, it is near Swanpool lake after all!

Wide bespoke cut sandstone platforms ensure a slow relaxed journey down to the patio. The planting was designed for seasonal colour and, in places,  to tumble over the terraces to soften the edges. The existing deck was requested to remain to continue to give fantastic views over to the beach.
