Garden design | Menston, Yorkshire
Our clients were seeking a professional garden design to work out the best way to integrate the conversion (and extension) of an under-used garage to a garden room into the garden. They also wanted to know how to connect the routes around the garden and across the different levels.
They also wanted:
Our clients with teenage children moved into their home four years previously, inheriting a neglected and tired garden. The property is situated next to a busy road with neighbouring houses around and a supermarket close by. The existing garden had no distinction between the front and back areas.
The levels across the site were quite complex. The main garden area was at a lower level than the tall Edwardian stone house. (The house is 8.8m high, the main garden area is 2m below house threshold).
“From our general experience, garden design drawings can sometimes be difficult to understand and work from. But this is not the case when working with Melissa Morton Garden Design. Their designs and technical drawings are very clear and easy-to-understand. This ensures the setting out and subsequent build very straight forward.
The areas and spaces are well-designed making the projects enjoyable to work on, as well as satisfying when the project is completed.
We enjoy working with the high quality materials that Melissa has helped the client to select. There is nothing more satisfying for a contractor working with quality materials that you know are going to last well for the client.”
