The first section of the garden consists of two areas of slate paving, split by decked walkway that zig-zags down the space. To the left, running partway along the existing brick wall, is fixed bench seating comprising purple rendered concrete block walls and a deck board seat.A movable decking table and decking cubes on castor’s were constructed in this area to provide a variety of al fresco dining possibilities.Planting is strong and simple.
