If we could acquire the side of the house then would be ideal to have part grass (for the kids and trampoline) but then patio for grown ups. Have a look exactly where it's worth having the patio dependant on the sun. This could totally effect what we bother doing in the front garden. We'd be man not to have built in beds I think
This is a contemporary take on trelliswork in a much smaller garden than yours. They've chosen a pale grey paving and grey granite setts to go with the rendered walls which are also painted a pale creamy colour. As you already have lovely walls, our scheme will be warmer-looking. I don't know why they discontinued the battened trellis at the rear of this small garden. I like the way they've used evergreen climbers against the walls.
