Patio with raised beds
This small patio in Lancing is is wedge-shaped and semi-shaded. It was wall-to-wall concrete. The design makes the most of light and space, with sleepers creating raised beds and seating. The project was done on a low budget: decking was a quick and easy option.
Planting is bold purple and orange, with year round flowering and evergreen cover.
