Adjustable Screen

Alan Titchmarsh has used several Grange products in the current series and this time one of their wide range of contemporary screens became an essential part of a garden transformation.

Sam, whose husband had recently died, and her two sons, one of whom had learning difficulties, were the subjects of the programme.

Her garden was relatively small but had one great advantage, it looked out onto a nature reserve.

So immediately the tall fencing and hedge at the end of the garden was taken down, so the adjacent hills and lake came into full view.

One addition to the garden that Sam had always wanted was a hot tub, and for reasons of privacy this needed to be hidden from the surrounding countryside.

However, something more adaptable than a traditional screen was required, one which would not block the view when the hot tub was not in use.

Contemporary Screening

An Adjustable Screen from Grange was the ideal solution as the slats can be opened and closed just like a Venetian blind.

Perfect as a patio or garden partition, when closed the screen will protect your privacy but, when opened, light will stream through the open slats and visually extend your outside space.

The team could have also considered a timber canopy to guard the hot tub from the elements and enable it to be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Sam's sons were not forgotten as a vegetable patch was developed for the youngest and her eldest son, who is a keen naturalist, can now observe wildlife on the nature reserve from a newly installed studio.

A bug box and small water garden was also put in place to encourage insects and frogs into the garden.

The result was a wonderful garden that could be enjoyed by the whole family with tradition mixed with contemporary design, flower beds and paved areas side by side with innovative products such as the adjustable screen.
