Project Description

Our client wanted an outdoor kitchen area that he could be proud of together with a beautiful garden that his partner could enjoy. She had some great ideas about how the garden should look together with other seatings areas, planting and other buildings for her working space.  The garden was to include:

  • A covered rustic structure which would house an outdoor seating area, kitchen, pizza oven, outdoor open oven, sink, refrigerator and a bar
  • Beautiful planting
  • Full irrigation system for lawn and borders
  • Full lighting and electrics for the outdoor kitchen and up lighters around the garden (wifi enabled)
  • Re-use of existing materials

The design alone took time, careful consideration, research and lots of planning but they loved it. Re-using the slabs to create the crazy paving around the lower patio area. York Stone was lifted and re-laid under the gazebo and oak sleeper steps were installed to lead up to the main lawn and also create extra seating areas. A tank filled and pumped irrigation system that covers the whole garden and the all fences were replaced.

The gazebo was built on site to our design and the structure and live edge work tops complete the rustic look.

The underside of the steps and bar have strip lighting which look beautiful at night. The chandeliers on the underside of the outdoor kitchen together with the heaters enable our clients to sit out all evening long with their friends.

Trees were planted and lots of evergreens and perennials to add colour and texture to the garden. Climbers were added to the beautiful iron pergola.

Thank you also to our host who keep us well fed with all his fantastic meals throughout the project.
