Build with brickHere’s another brickwork bed. In contemporary gardens, bricks are often rendered for a slick, modern look, but here, choosing a dark brick is in keeping with the feel of the rest of the space. If you’re going for dark bricks, consider how much your mortar colour will affect the final look, and ask your landscaper to choose a similarly dark shade to keep things streamlined.See how to create different zones in your garden.

“The garden was just too dark for a lawn, and the owners didn’t want artificial grass,” says Trevor. “So we designed a simple, practical layout with a clear surface for the kids to play on.“We enclosed the space with cedar battens, and left them open at the top to make it feel less dense,” he adds. “The back wall reflects the brickwork on the extension.”The team worked with gardener Theo, from Greenprint Landscapes, who took care of all the planting.
