Garden Project, Aldeburgh: Landscaping, Pergola, Shed, Outdoor Fireplace & Patio

19 April 2021

Our brief:

A modern, yet stylish holiday home that is low maintenance.


Landscaping, fireplace, outdoor shower, pergola, garden shed & patio to fit in with the new extension.


Our customer wanted to transform a traditional terraced garden into a space specifically designed for entertaining, keeping with the theme of the Suffolk beachside town of Aldeburgh whilst adding contemporary elements to it.

We began by clearing the site using a mini digger, followed by re-levelling the ground.

The existing garden was overlooked, with just a wire fence separating it from the neighbours garden. To give our customers that feeling of privacy, we built a 2m fence around the border.

A timber frame pergola was built, attached to the new extension with an Italian tiled paving area.

As our customer had asked for a contemporary garden that was low maintenance we installed an artificial lawn, surrounded by gabion stone retainers. We built a raised composite decking area with  an outdoor rendered fireplace and painted timber pergola – perfect for those long summer evenings. 

Additionally, we added a heated cedar and oak outdoor shower space. The heating unit was hidden away inside the shed along with the hot water feed –  the idea here being that the sand would be kept outside where it belongs!

To finish the garden, we built a painted storage shed, added in a warm lighting scheme and planted some low maintenance shrubbery and flowers.
