We created a beautiful garden for the Drake family in episode eight of Love Your Garden.
We wanted to make a stunning outdoor space for the family to enjoy spending as much time as possible together.
This what the garden looked like when we arrived:
And this is the garden after the makeover.
I loved the wildflower meadow feel. We put a lot of wood into the garden and it had a really naturalistic style.
The circular patio was lovely and the log edging was truly effective.
The wood on the shed made it feel more like part of the garden and I adored the hanging candle lights in mason jars along the path.
And that outdoor bed was incredible! I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical when Frances suggested it, but it looked great. And it was so comfy.
In fact, here we are testing it out!
The seating area and fire pit are perfect for getting as much enjoyment as possible out of the garden.
And I want a bar in my own garden!
I also loved the little touches for the children. I hope they love playing on that tractor.
