This garden needed to be redeveloped to accommodate the needs of two young children. An innovative solution was required to encourage independent exploration and play in a safe, but stimulating environment.
A level access from the house to a patio with family dining area was created, from which a sweeping ramp leads to the upper level of the garden, allowing for wheelchair access to the lawn play area. A stainless steel orb & disk water fountain feeds a shallow rill running alongside the ramp to stimulate movement and introduce gentle sounds, creating a calming atmosphere.
A mid-level bench seating area provides a central viewpoint in order to maintain supervision of the whole garden space.
