Transforming a drab garden in south-east London

The steep slopes of the drab existing garden at this property consisted largely of an uneven grass ‘lawn’ and a few tired plants.

It offered little to the owners and their three children, so they commissioned Simon Orchard Garden Design to create a garden that all members of the family could use for relaxation and play.

Millboard was the perfect choice for this project, offering great performance and requiring little or no maintenance on the part of my busy clients. It’s a great product.Simon Orchard, Garden Designer, simonorchardgardens.com

The outcome

The garden has been transformed into a space with distinctive areas for relaxing and having fun. The Millboard decking has been used to create a balcony at the entrance to the house, a mid-level deck extending out over the area below, overlapping steps that lead from the lawn area to a sunken trampoline, and a sundeck on top of a new garden studio.

Millboard’s Plas-Pro sub-frame components were used to ensure all the underlying structures will last as long as the decks they support.
