This ex-local authority house’s garden had huge potential, with the garden sitting along the side of the property.  We packed a lot into a modest area, utilising various levels to maximise space.  Water runs out from the lily-pond pool in the corner and under the raised deck, down into the main pond in the middle of the garden, gurgling as it goes.  The result?  A lush verdant city oasis to unwind in.
