After removing the lawn and soil we added a membrane and compacted hardcore stone level over the area.  We then built the seating area, which was built from concrete blocks with the fronts being rendered and the tops finished with granite stone pieces.

The seat tops were also constructed from hardwood deck boards, and at the rear of the seats, a planting area was filled with soil and compost with bamboos hiding the garage wall behind it, with grasses also being added.

The rendered walls were painted gardenia white and the deck lights were positioned into the decking. Steps were constructed to get to the garden area which was now totally transformed and ready to use.
