Parsonage Brow, Upholland
This is a contemporary garden, on two levels. We made good use of a site that was a lawn on a steep slope that couldn't be used for anything. The brief from the client was: "We need the garden to give us usable adult space as well as an area where the children can play." The client added, "The garage along the back is rather imposing."
The client chose sawn grey sandstone (which has a smooth surface), along with K-rend rendering systems to give a maintanace-free white surface which reflects a lot of light - ideal for a north facing garden. The client opted for a stainless steel handrail. The site required 40 tons of earth to be excavated to generate the two levels. Concrete walls were formed and then tiled in the same material used on the patio. Rendering was added, as was timber cladding to the fence lines and garage. The artwork on the garage helps to distract the eye from the imposing brickwork.
