Outdoor Living, Clayton-Le-Woods

Outdoor living is the key in this contemporary Lancashire garden.  Minimalist hard landscaping fuses with textural planting that changes throughout the seasons.  The design takes advantage of level changes across the garden incorporating steps, walls and paths in a clean, modern layout.


  • Blue-grey granite paving, steps  and walls give a minimal, three dimensional look.
  • A  generous dining area sits in the heart of the garden
  • A pair of lawns and a variety of routes through the garden enable children to play.
  • Blocks of grasses and perennials add interest throughout the year, with seasonal splashes of colour.  A backdrop of evergreen shrubs, trees and shade loving plants will mature to screen the fence.
