The client required a design and installation service from Timotay for the creation of an outdoor space to completement their modern, luxury riverside home.
The property is situated at the end of a mews and is a modern take on a boathouse, with an impressive viewpoint of the River Dee. The client wanted an outdoor space with high social value, with defined areas for dining and entertaining that would also maximise the views whist also considering the play needs of their young child.
Timotay undertook a bespoke design and development of the driveway, courtyard and rear garden with water feature, and a range of hard and soft landscaping. The total area of the scheme is approximately 900-square meters.
The property itself has an elevated position, with the garden cascading down a slope towards the river. Due to this position, and the inclusion of an extensive planting scheme, the design dictated the need for an integrated water irrigation system.
To maximise space and incorporate a bespoke water feature the design included a series of raised areas and sunken patios comprising of modern paving, walling and screening that gently traverse with the natural flow of the water leading a path to a lawn area at the foot of the garden.
For privacy and security of the property the brief included the design and installation of a bespoke boundary fence to complement the existing aged stone wall and bespoke automated gates and pedestrian access to the front and rear of the property and garage.
The scheme was required to incorporate contemporary lighting to optimise the use of the outdoor space during the evenings and highlight the aesthetics of the garden when viewing from indoors at night.
