Family garden for Fun and Entertaining

By London garden designer Julie Zeldin. The large area of lawn in this garden is an important football pitch for the young boys in the family and their friends!

Family garden for fun and entertaining

The clients wanted to keep as much of the lawn as possible whilst bringing the garden up to date and including new terraces and spaces to entertain and play.

The terraces and steps in pale limestone are contrasted with large decks in western red cedar and new planting is introduced around the garden, amongst the existing mature trees and shrubs on site.

Extensive bulb planting ensures a changing scene within an all year show of flowers and evergreen structure.

Family garden for fun and entertaining

A play frame was commissioned which is used all year, and sits well to one side of the terrace.

Family garden for fun and entertaining

Lighting illuminates all areas at night with sparkling LEDs set into the decks to give a delicate sprinkling of light, whilst other lights illuminate larger trees and gently flood the steps.
