Sloping Garden 1

Sloping Garden 1

The client wanted to use sleepers to create terracing for planting and a safe alternative to the existing very steep steps linking upper and lower patios. There are now seven terraces of differing widths and shape with planting united by colour and form, but complex enough to create changing interest all year round. Build by Paul Taylor.
