Chorlton Back Garden

This small space has a big impact all year round.  A recent side-return extension means that the garden is viewed from the house through large bifold doors which lead directly outdoors.   The layout is family friendly, with well considered planting that provides visual interest throughout the seasons.


  • A Millboard deck connects the kitchen to the garden via bi-fold doors
  • The circular lawn is surrounded by planting, including espaliered fruit trees and a range of textural grasses, shrubs and trees
  • A sandstone patio with bistro set provides an intimate seating space – the ideal spot to enjoy a glass  of wine
  • An arbor offers shady seating and a unique focal point that anchors the design
