Contemporary outdoor space in Birmingham

Settled in the rural Barnt Green, just south of Birmingham, this large garden lacked interest and our clients were unsure what they wanted but knew they didn’t like the existing space and barely used it.

Keeping in mind the need for a multi-use space, something that reflected the style and high-spec interior of the client’s home, as well as keeping the balance between practicality and striking aesthetics, Landscapia crafted a space that would work for both the children and the adults and utilised the space to incorporate several elements of interest.

Featuring three bespoke seating areas, including a garden snug, a circular millboard decking area, and a dining area with a large pergola. There is also a play zone and a large lawn area, complete with a mass of planting and zone lighting.

The garden snug features a gas-powered fire table, hugged by planting and featuring walls clad in DesignClad porcelain veneers. Leading from the kitchen/dining area is the large millboard circular seating area, which is where the clients spend a lot of their time. The dining area is encased by a chunky pergola that creates a room-like feeling within the garden, whilst still allowing natural light to pour in. This area is further surrounded by raised beds filled with planting and the walls are faced in a slate veneer to add a different feel and compliment the simplicity of the porcelain paving.

At the top of the garden sits a large porcelain patio, featuring large format tiles and full width steps, opening into a boardwalk which carries a warmth through the entire garden. This leads to a wild natural area which will eventually be covered in wildflowers for the clients’ children to explore and have adventures in. This is joined by a more structured children’s play area, covered in shock pads and artificial grass so the children can safely enjoy the space.

This Birmingham landscaping project is completely unique and offers an amazing place for a lovely family to enjoy for a very long time.
