Bring Me Sunshine
Within this garden a large shrub border was the main beneficiary of all the sunshine, leaving the clients to sit in dark shade whilst dining outside. The removal of the shrub border has allowed the dining table to take pride of place in the sunshine whilst the wide steps, that spread the width of the house, have created additional casual seating areas. A planting bed directly opposite the inside dining table ensures that the client always has something of interest to look at. Hostas are planted in the patio and with the addition of some pots, break up the expanse of green slate.
