We started the garden off with an open patio space, before making our way to the large outdoor cooking area, featuring a fully functional kitchen.
The outdoor building displays a section where the sides are open, to keep it linked and in full view of the new impressive garden space. As the homeowner is involved with the local soup kitchen, it was important for us to include an enclosed section at the back of the garden, within the building itself, for creating recipes and soups.
This area meant the homeowner could generously produce her delicious food for people all year round from the comfort of her garden.
The building itself had a real rustic nature to it. We salvaged the furniture which made up the dining area and this upholstered seating was repainted in a mix of bright colours that really popped. With the addition of an upcycled table made out of uprights and scaffold boards which we then sanded down to give a modern, yet rustic, twist.
Altering your everyday shop bought items, to an eclectic collection of seating really embellished that marvellous outdoor building. Plus, with the wall planting section featuring a fantastic collection of herbs, I thought was a clever use of the upright wall spaces, perfect for picking fresh ingredients that can be enjoyed and used in cooking.
