A Steep Garden

A dramatic transformation from a dangerous bank strewn with rubble and flints to an easily accessible and beautiful garden. This was the site of a brick pit, which meant that the soil was clay and easily transformed into healthy soil, now enjoyed by a rich variety of plants. The gradient is 40 degrees and there are two flights of steps from the lawn leading to level paths which meander around the bank, linked by short flights of steps. It is still a dizzying drop from the top of the bank but now my clients have a wonderful view and they’ve doubled the useful area of their garden.
