Crafting Garden Spaces: Design and Construction of a Family Garden

Project Objectives - Ginkgo Project

Create a versatile outdoor space for entertaining, dining, and socialising, whilst preserving the mature trees and creating a shade-tolerant planting scheme.

Design Solution

The garden undergoes a redesign that maximises its potential. To manage the challenging terrain and the mature birch tree's sensitive root system, the garden is divided into two controlled levels. Natural turf flanks a central limestone path, which also provides the necessary support for the garden's graceful transformation. Two distinct patios are created, each offering unique areas for relaxation, entertainment, and dining. The rear patio is elegantly enveloped by a natural dry stone wall, serving as a captivating focal point. Tegula block detailing borders the limestone path, introducing rhythm, proportion, and scale, while creating an appealing stepping stone effect.
