    Hi Charlotte, they were made bespoke offsite and then fitted.

    Hi Nural, all the timber on the house build was iroko so that's what we used for these panels.

    GardenWhen it comes to lighting your outside space, it’s a good idea to pick a particular plant or feature and light it really well. By doing this, you’ll create a focal point that will connect you to the outside. Be conscious of your viewing points from inside the house – your lighting scheme should work to highlight parts of the garden.Tell us…Have you successfully lit a particular room in your home? If so, please share your tips and photos in the Comments section.

    Stay off the grassThis urban garden is low-maintenance, yet stunning. Interest is added not with pretty planting, but through clever landscaping. The different levels and surfaces (paving slabs and gravel) create a contemporary feel and even makes the space seem larger than it actually is. There are easy-care green plants in the raised beds, punctuated by trees and larger shrubs, and there’s no grass in sight so the mower can be put away. The real showstopper, though, is the small pond that divides the two levels.

    Breathe life into the gardenTo give a new garden a kickstart, make sure you allocate a reasonable budget for mature planting and shrubbery. This will give a foundation of coverage early on. A professional landscaper should be able to advise on which plants will work best for your garden’s location and soil, and which varieties will really play to your home’s architectural strengths. Factor in wiring for lighting, a hot tub, pond or water feature, which could add value to your home. These can be planned during the early stages, while the soft landscaping will need to be done after all the builders and tradespeople have left.

    Lighting gives us that outdoor room feelTo help our outdoor space work beautifully as an extra room, we often install lighting. Of those who did, 80% said it was to pick out features in the garden and create a lovely ambience, whereas 71% said they simply wanted to create a more enjoyable and relaxing space, which can be used after dark, too.
