Designed with low maintenance in mind, Indian Sandstone combines with a raised deck which is angled to maximise the clever strategic planting of well-chosen shrubs including magnolia, acer, grasses, buxus, mature photinia, ferns, rose and heathers. A feature architectural wall with a bench built into it is striking and is back planted with bamboo. Garden lighting and wiring for speakers will add to the enjoyment that can be had here. A cleverly designed & attractive block built shed is tucked away into the corner, it has power and a pretty window, and maximises storage. A separate plant room houses the heat recovery system, upgraded gas boiler, and central vacuum system.
