Urban Arch and Raised Beds

Alan Titchmarsh and his team took the inaccessible wasteland that Caroline Hall called her garden and turned it into a animal centred haven around which she could easily move.

A log cabin became the garden's focal point, a social hub for dining and entertaining, as well as offering a storage area for gardening equipment. As was emphasized, log cabins can also be the ideal place for hobbies and range of other activities that get you away from domestic distractions.

The garden was quite long and not very wide, and a Grange Urban Arch was used to divide it into different sections with separate themes. The arch is part of their new urban range which feature complementary contemporary items, and a bench was placed underneath where Caroline could rest and admire the team's handiwork.

Raised Beds

Raised beds are a boon to anyone who cannot for any reason bend while tending their garden. So Rowlinsons 4' x 4' Raised Planters were installed in order that fresh vegetables could be picked for the kitchen from Caroline's wheelchair. Easy to assemble, the timber is pressure treated against rot and can be stained or painted.

The garden was completed with a traditional timber framed greenhouse and a fire pit, The latter is a rectangular steel frame containing blazing logs around which people can gather and stay warm on cool evenings. Weather resistant, the pit develops a film of rust that protects it against corrosion.

Once again the Love Your Garden team had taken an unloved and neglected piece of land and, by using innovative design and top quality landscaping materials, created a superb and very practical garden.
