Family Garden Designs

A family garden has to be designed to be put to many uses. We realise it has to be a practical space that can be so many things - from a children’s play area, to a stylish area for when the grown-ups want to entertain!

We work alongside you and take any inspirational ideas you already have and incorporate them into the design. Whatever ideas you have - we can usually build you a garden to match!

 Fill out our enquiry form, or  call us on 0845 603 2598 and speak to one of our friendly expert staff to start the process of designing your own dream family garden!   

Here are some that we designed earlier. To look at the final garden, click on the image or the name of the garden.

Family Garden

The aim was to provide the two small children with some dedicated play space and a pleasing garden for the adults to enjoy together with a paved area large enough in which to entertain.

Hidden Underground Storage

In order to maximise both the apparent, and actual, space in the garden a design based around diagonal lines was employed for the decking area nearest to the house, leading the eye back and forth across the space.

Built-in seating provides the opportunity for concealed, sunken storage for the bikes, as well as reducing the need for additional furniture.

Pavilion Garden

This was a long rectangular garden to a large Victorian house, belonging to a young professional couple with a baby boy. A large lawn provided play space for the baby, and for the rather energetic dog!

Our clients wanted to retain the shape of the lawn and to keep the existing patio, but to create a second seating area outside the new outdoor room at the end of the garden.

Sunken Trampoline

The family wanted a practical, but attractive garden for play and for entertaining. One important consideration was that the children wanted to include a trampoline.

Large Suburban Garden

Our clients asked us for a larger deck area by the house, together with another seating area - further down the garden to use at different times of the day to take advantage of the sun. They also wanted a more natural area to the rear with a woodland feel.

Round in Circles

Our client wanted a low maintenance garden but still with a cottage/traditional feel and to keep as much of the lawn as possible. He also requested two seating areas to take advantage of the sun at different times of the day. 

The design introduced interest to what otherwise could have been a large uninteresting expanse of grass by incorporating large interlocking brick circles.

Double Dutch

Our clients wanted to complement the building with the design for the garden, but they also needed to turn their uninviting plot into a space that would be practical for a young family to use and enjoy.

Love a Triangle

This new-build plot was broadly triangular, which has its own design challenges, and our clients wanted a strong scheme with a contemporary edge to complement their interior furnishings and to provide interest throughout the year.

Hive of Activity

There was a fairly new sandstone patio next to the house which our clients wished to keep, but apart from that, a big injection of style and interest was required.
