Southport Family Garden

BUILT 2017

A welcoming space for a young family of 5 who love to spend time outdoors. This small, new build garden is designed to ensure that there is plenty of room for everyone to eat, play and relax.


  • A sandstone dining terrace links the garden to the living room and kitchen – a generous space where the family can eat and barbecue all year round.
  • Beneath the pergola the family can relax on sofas and enjoy sun throughout the day.
  • Raised oak sleeper beds enable successful planting in an area with poor subsoil.
  • A small, easy to maintain lawn provides space for children to play
  • Paths lead through the garden to the converted garage office allowing easy access throughout the year
  • Dark fences offer a dramatic backdrop to the planting scheme that Sally has enjoyed designing herself

What a designer …  Lindsay totally understood our love for our garden and what we wanted from it, and helped us create it in a very small space.  Couldn’t recommend her enough!  – Sally R
