Hot tub garden
A homeowner felt his garden had got out of control. It was cluttered, the plants had outgrown their spaces. The hot-tub was poorly sited and the patio had been taken over by a shed.
The economical design makes features of the existing patio, evergreen laurel hedge, and a spectacular mature magnolia tree. The space was de-cluttered, the hot-tub moved to a better position and a shed removed. Walls and fences were painted.
INNOVATION: using rubber playground tiles as a slip proof and fall-safe base for a hot-tub. If you drop your champagne glass, it will bounce.
