I am just about to landscape my garden and this article has provided such inspiration as the layout is identical. Composite seating area outside the French doors and paved area at the bottom, even the bench seat is in the same place. I love the pavers with lanterns, I'll be showing this to my landscaper. Agree it would be good to have idea as to a price. To keep costs down I'm doing the planting and clearing the garden with the help of my sons. Only paying for the heavy landscaping. It's a good idea to get the quote broken down into areas of the garden and that way if money is tight you can make decisions on which areas to focus on. Thank you for a really useful article and the garden is lovely, sophisticated but still has a lovely soft look.

This garden is so like the size of mine. I have a casement door to the back of my property which is west facing and casement door from the kitchen facing north. Have a patio area between the 2 doors that I have edged on 2 sides with planted pots and a path leading to end of the sloping garden with a gate for removing our bins. The area to the left is overshadowed by a cartlodge which does not get any sun. I have a shed and paved area for my bins laid plum slate to the rest as the grass was staying so wet but think artificial grass might be more suitable. The rest of the garden has artificial grass as it is better for my 2 dogs. I would really like an area at the bottom of the garden on the right for my table and chairs as this area gets more sun. This garden design is lovely and has really made me think how I could change mine.

I love the details on this garden, everything has been carefully considered. Also the pergola and fireplace construction, nice to combine them both.
