Seaside ‘getaway’

A cool boutique style ‘getaway’ destination was created to offer weekend escapes to Brighton, and the theme was to be soft coastal without the ‘seaside clichés’.

The garden was a tiny enclosed courtyard that needed a radical clearance and clever reuse of the limited space. The key ingredients to this scheme were – natural textures -timber slats & decking and whitewashed fencing, a gorgeous planting scheme to enhance the outdoor experience, and to maximize the limited space for a small table for al fresco dining.

The solution was to divide the space into 2 halves – the larger space for sitting, dining and chilling, and for the smaller space a large ‘wave’ shaped raised bed to contain the new plants.
