The brief: A coffee spot to catch the morning sun in this North-east facing garden, easily negotiable levels up the hill, a potting shed to nourish young plants for the clients’ allotment, and an evening drinks and nibbles area at the end of the garden.

The patio, generous path and wide steps used non-slip Italian ‘Golden Stone’ porcelain tiles, whilst the retaining walls, stepping stones across the lawn, and drinks area were built from local wood-fired bricks. The beautiful potting shed was sourced from Jay Swallow buildings. At the end a green oak arbour provided shelter, and support for the existing grape vine and other climbers, and to the side, in the sunniest and most sheltered spot in the garden, a gravel garden for sun-loving pollinators and evergreens.
