Town Garden on a chalk slope.

Part of a northwest facing slope was to be designed for a couple with children. The area caught the late afternoon and evening sun. They wished to sit out here in the evenings together and at times to entertain several people. Also to have a pond with a stream, rocks and walkways. I decided to put in several terraces and path ways using natural rock walls with a built in seat beside a spill and low sit on walls to a terrace area which had a curved rill leading to a lower pond. The spill transported them back to a favourite place in Scotland and disguised the sounds of traffic from a nearby road. Their children love playing in the area with the paths, grotto and water.
