This was a simple set of sleeper walls to retain a steep bank leading to the front of the house and to better level the lawn above. The client wanted to keep the existing steps. There was not a great deal of design content, but nonetheless it is important to develop the initial idea into a sketch so the client can see what they are going to get and how that works with the existing path.
The design re-engineered the steep bank down to the house with a set of sleeper beds as a retaining wall and gave a more usable lawn area. The client was keen to choose and add the plants themselves to provide colour and interest all year round to be enjoyed from the comfort of their house!
