Epsom – Decking over a raised eyesore

Newly laid turf and new decking

The brief:

A garden with a raised patio which was very badly laid. The side access was uneven racked  concrete. There was an uneven lawn and an unwanted hazel tree was also blocking the sunlight.

The client wanted to keep the raised area for dining in the evening, raised flowerbeds with easy to maintain planting, a small area for vegetable growing.


To keep the cost down with decided to deck over the paving and clad the wall with timber to give the illusion of raised sleepers.

The side access was also decked over with a gate and laid black limestone at the end.
We removed the existing hazel tree to let more light in. Raised beds where created out of sleepers with easy to maintain planting and bark and a large raised bed for vegetable growing.
The lawn was pulled up re-levelled and new turf laid.
