This sloping garden has been terraced to make it more accessible to the family’s young children. Modern wire railings are used for their minimalistic effect, and to provide security. Natural elements of wood, stone and water create a structural form and a focal point on the decking. Another feature is the contemporary raised bed with shallow venetian fencing which marks out the play area, though the parents are still able to see their children playing. Lights on both features provide an enjoyable prospect at night.
