They want to enjoy the evening with friends, and at the same time, a place for their teenage sons to meet with their friends. The garden is small and square, so we had a limited area to play with. We wanted the available place next to the shed to be included into the garden and we did so by designing a tailor-made wooden bench. The bench has been placed in such a way that it makes the terrace by the shed longer, as it exceeds the line of the shed where it stops. This  in combination with the different panelled wooden fence at the back, makes the space next to the shed more spacious. The gate in the fence is panelled in the same way. In this way the whole space has the same style and is now a part of the garden instead a small place next to the shed. Clematis growing along a metal plant support complements this terrace. Add a fire pit and a small table and this new space is perfect for long evenings outside. The wooden posts at one side of the bench are perfect to put a pillow against. These posts are standing in one line with the other wooden posts in the middle of the garden. The posts, together with the multi-stem tree, divides the garden in two parts. In time ornamental grass will soften these posts and the small tree will restrict being overlooked by the neighbours. On the other side of the posts is a terrace big enough for a dining table for six people. This terrace with a different tile is surrounded by  colourful plants, attractive for butterflies and bees. An abundance of bulbs will create a real spring feeling around this terrace. Between house and terrace, we’ve placed a planting bed. Throughout the year this will be a buffer between house and terrace. These few design tricks, the planting by the house, the wooden posts, the multi-stem tree and the tailor- made bench makes this small patio garden look wider and deeper, and therefore a lot more spacious and a great new garden to enjoy.
