Small garden design by Karen Chamberlain

Small garden design

Colchester, Essex

Client’s brief
“We’re looking to improve the design of our small garden that is too shady for the lawn to survive – we have a big mud patch! We’d like our small garden design to include an ‘outdoor room’; somewhere to be able to relax, entertain and where our son can play. We would like to retain our existing, painted furniture.”

Small garden design tip

When looking to design a small garden think seriously about ditching the lawn and investing in some beautiful natural stone paving.

Client’s review
“Having our garden designed and planted was a very positive experience for us. Karen showed immediate empathy to what we were looking for. Since the garden has been completed it has also changed our perception of the house and its surroundings and we are no longer conscious of our proximity to our neighbours. The garden can be enjoyed from any room in the house – it’s become a real part of our living space.”
