The land was originally sloping away from the house, but was levelled before I was asked to design the garden surrounding a newly built house. As a result, the land falls sharply at the end of the plot. This is not the best solution to a sloping land, but we managed to use it to our advantage. Apart of the traditional terrace next to the house, we created another one that is sunk into the slope. This private and somewhat hidden space became very popular and is loved and occupied especially by the children. There is also a vegetable garden that is still waiting for the raised beds, but the wild strawberries under the fruit trees are already at their best.
