This garden is a typical city garden measuring just 5 m by 20 m. Clever design has enabled us to install many features making it truly multi-functional. Raised vegetable beds at a handy work-top height surround a central paved circle housing an underground sand pit which can be covered and walked over when not in use. The outside office provides a work area separate from the house and helps conceal a practical composting area from view. A child’s swing can be attached to the pergola which provides support for climbing plants. Seating areas are situated on each decked area and there is still room for plenty of decorative plants in the borders. We have made use of the vertical space and added espaliered fruit trees and climbing varieties of vegetables such as beans, peas, squash and courgettes.
