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 cars parked on their gravel driveway blocked the current view. They now sit out on their patio looking out over a beautiful new garden ‘room’ filled with soft natural planting. A contemporary reflective pool enhances the beautiful East Lothian skies.
Hedging screens the shorter driveway. A rustic wooden trellis separates the area around the reflective pool from the lawn, where grandchildren run around.
The owners now enjoy their morning coffee and croissants in their new sunny, secluded kitchen garden ‘room’. Here, they are surrounded by fragrant roses and herbs and there is 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.
