Riverside garden

By Norwich garden designer Jamie Miles. This garden by the river started life as a small expanse ofconcrete paving.

Clever design has incorporated a shed, a patio, a timber path, a wooden deck and a variety of seating options whilst creating plenty of space for plants. The planting gets more reed-like as you approach the riverside and frames the view of the river without closing in the space.

The patio is an intricate mix of reclaimed pavers, bricks & paments with a band of local flint cobbles.

The table and benches have been created by Miles Garden Design from timber from a local reclaim yard.
