A small private garden in the Cliff Conservation area of Salford.

The clent wanted a well considered garden with good quality materials which

respected the historic context of the site in a conservation area of mainly 18th and 19th century buildings.

Details were developed which drew on local patterns from existing housing and buildings -trying to avoid clumsy pastiche.

The garden is a simple modern parterre with shade tolerant groundcover edged with box featuring similar tracery.

Flame textured York stone and specially cut stone gate posts echo the original details of the road.
