The owners of this rural smiddy wanted to make the most of the stunning views from their living room and patio. They looked out over East Lothian countryside, but the current view was blocked by cars parked on their gravel driveway. I designed a beautiful new garden ‘room’ full of soft grasses and natural planting by shortening the driveway and screening this with hedging. I created a reflective pool to enhance the beautiful East Lothian evening skies.
The owners now enjoy their morning coffee and croissants round the side of the house. Their new sunny, secluded kitchen garden ‘room’ is surrounded by fragrant roses and herbs. They have space to grow a few fruit and vegetables for a tasty supper. They also love being able to grab a handful of fresh herbs to throw in the cooking pot.
