This small, long and very narrow garden posed several challenges.

How to create a useable, low maintenance garden which was only four to ten feet wide and still maintain privacy from the communal path running down the entire length.

Natural larch lap fencing, limestone paving and white spar gravel help reflect light. Cut out planting holes in the paving allow climbers to soften sections of the fencing and fill out the trellis above whilst pushing the paving to the edges of the area.

Seating built around the base of the tree again maximises space and doubles as clever storage to help keep this small garden free of clutter.
