Shady Back Garden Design

This customer was keen to have a garden that invites in lots of wildlife, so a pond was our first suggestion.

The house is terraced with the sun being blocked out by other tall houses and large trees. The garden is fairly large and once we had removed a dense bay tree and had trimmed back the ivy, it became more open and light.

The boys had fun smashing out the stump of the bay tree, which didn’t yield lightly!

A fair amount of green waste was removed, though we kept a Camellia which is at the far end of the garden. It has pale pink flowers and is a real beauty.

Once the trellis was up around the perimeter of the garden, the ground was levelled and prepared for two patio areas – once outside the back door and the other at the far end of the garden. The boys then dug out the pond. We enjoyed creating the planting plan for this garden.
