That’s entertainment

This tight, 66 square meter Highgate Hill terrace integrates the garden with the home for a seamless alfresco entertaining area. A finely crafted hardwood deck acts as a strong foundation, with custom made planter boxes framing the area, doubling as seating to maximise space. A unique water feature takes pride of place in this outdoor area, which was designed for a young family with a hands on approach to gardening. This garden is more than a view outside or from the street; it is a garden that brings people together.

What the client said

We were completely unsure how to make a garden out of our difficult back yard and Ben pleasantly surprised us over and over with his creative ideas and beautiful design. From the very first meeting, he listened carefully to what we wished for, then delivered above and beyond what we had imagined. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
