The Lymm Water Tower, a famous landmark and a listed building with a contemporary extension, required a stand-out garden to complement the architecture remaining sympathetic to the surrounding countryside.
The design needed to be visually impactful from above, as the garden can be viewed from the roof tower.
The brief was to create division between the garden and surrounding fields and to use contemporary materials.
Westminster Stone's Livingstone natural stone range was chosen as it worked well with the proposed garden design. Westminster Stone was also able to source complementary setts and gravel.
The paving design radiates out from the tower, to give maximum visual impact from above and reflect the curve of the building.
A ha-ha wall was built to discreetly separate the garden from the fields below. A driveway was added to the front of the property with pathways leading around the house. Contemporary limestone and granite was used for the paving and landscaping.
• Paving and terraces – Blue/Black Limestone flagstones
• Gravel & pathways – Black basalt
• Edging to pathways – Granite setts
