This project involved the complete redesign of the rear garden area and the creation of a new outdoor swimming pool. The installation and creation of a large outdoor living space at the rear of the property incorporated a barbecue and cooking area as well as outdoor seating with a bioethanol bespoke fireplace as the central feature. This whole area was set within a bespoke cedar pergola.

Additional seating areas were created as part of the project and sandstone paving laid throughout the garden area, with stone cladding on all walls. New lawn was laid with additional planting in newly created beds supported by a versatile irrigation system. Garden lighting was also installed to complete the design.

The judges said: "This impressive scheme features a series of terraces around a renovated property. The paved areas, steps and walling have been very well executed and the entertaining and barbecue area features a stone-clad curved back wall from which emanate the slats of the pergola covering the area. A very subtle planting pallet has been beautifully employed. Overall, the scheme reflects excellent detailing and a consistently high standard of construction."
