A garden with a playset and lawn for two boisterous young boys was created from what was once a fully paved back garden. The artificial lawn means football can be played outside most of the year. A sleek limestone patio edged with granite offers plenty of space for entertaining guests, and the easy to look after planting is designed to peak in early summer. A new wine red clematis adds dramatic colour to the house wall. The subtle lighting makes the garden look dramatic at night.
