Client's Brief

Elmstead Market, Colchester, Essex

As the result of a major building extension project, the brief was to transform this large garden area into a modern style that incorporated a large existing pond. Several large trees had already been removed and privacy from overlooking properties was required. A decked private sitting area and covered pergola was also required.

This large project required a complete reshape of the existing pond, with a decked area with pergola, different paths and an additional sitting area to view the pond to link all these elements together. A shaped patio area next to the extended property to provide a dedicated dining space was made more private by a line of beautiful ornamental pear trees with a teardrop canopy.
