Contemporary Outdoor Room Milton Keynes

PROJECT INFO: New Build House

LOCATION: Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

 

This small new build garden has been transformed from a patch of sloping lawn to a crisp, contemporary outdoor room with a courtyard feel.

Three distinct 'floating' levels were constructed to create more usable flat spaces, stepping stones through planting link the spaces together and a gravel path creates a secondary route through the garden.

For neatness paving areas were faced with stone cut to size, no retaining walling was requires resulting in a crisper, neat finish.

The boundary fencing was stained black, and a contemporary water feature has been incorporated. A planting scheme comprising purples, whites and yellows adds year round visual interest.
