This large garden in Buckinghamshire, wraps all the way around the house, and as we wanted all the spaces to link together, we used the same pale sandstone paving throughout but varied the size of the units and pattern according to the use of different areas. The design needed to include areas for growing fruit and vegetables so at the front, as well as a border with plants for winter interest, we created a formal herb garden using raised beds made of oak sleepers. At the back, the terrace was widened to create a more generous dining area, 3 additional timber beds were added for growing vegetables, generous bike storage was hidden away in the corner, and a sauna and small gym installed in a new garden building.
