An odd shaped garden, level changes and the desire for a hot tub set into a private raised desk formed our brief for this garden on the private Hutton Mount estate, Brentwood, Essex.
With a large terrace for entertaining, deck and hot tub with trompe l'oeil on the rendered wall as a backdrop, the design included a 12m long ‘stream’. With water held in a large below ground reservoir when not in use the feature appears to be a dry riverbed. When operating, it runs as a stream, with water covering the cobbles and stones for a different design aesthetic.
Size: 500 - 1,000 m2
Budget: £25K - 50K including terrace, deck, ‘stream’ water feature, lawn and planting
