Concept plans and walkthrough animations by MP Landscape & Garden Design for a rear garden in Pontefract.
Design an inviting space for outdoor dining. This can be a patio, deck, or a designated area with a dining table and chairs. Choose furniture that is durable and suitable for outdoor use. Consider shading options like umbrellas or a pergola to provide comfort on sunny days.
Use bricks to construct raised beds for gardening. These beds add visual appeal and provide a practical space for planting flowers, herbs, or vegetables. Choose a suitable size and height for easy maintenance and accessibility. Fill the beds with nutrient-rich soil and consider companion planting for better yield.
Fire Pit Areas:
Create a cozy area for a fire pit where you can gather with family and friends. Choose a suitable location and construct a fire pit using bricks or stone. Include comfortable seating around the fire pit, such as benches or outdoor chairs, and ensure adequate space for safety.
Incorporate a variety of plants to enhance the beauty of your garden. Consider the local climate and choose plants that thrive in Pontefract. Include a mix of flowers, shrubs, and trees for color, texture, and fragrance. Plant native species to support local wildlife and consider incorporating a mix of perennials and annuals for year-round interest.
Install outdoor lighting to enhance the ambiance and usability of your garden. Use a combination of functional and decorative lighting. Consider path lights to illuminate walkways, accent lighting to highlight focal points like the kitchen or fire pit area, and ambient lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
