Amanda's plot was typical of a newly built home; this blank slate happened to be on a hillside. She wanted a very low maintenance garden where she can relax and gather together her friends, and a good sized paved area where they can play Giant Jenga!

Sloping gardens offer an opportunity to make a dynamic series of spaces, and the design truly makes the most of that. Simple planting complements the paving. The simple palette of materials means that the modern style sits comfortable among the new homes and within the wider landscape.

What Amanda has to say:

"I chose Earthworks Garden Design because of a great personal service along with a lovely garden design plan which took into consideration my garden space, what it would be used for and time available for maintenance - as well as my personality! Cheri did a fantastic job of co-ordinating the labour. She has also been in touch since the garden was finished to make sure everything is OK and to help with any questions about the plants, maintenance etc. I can't recommend Earthworks Garden Design highly enough!"
