Bespoke Platform Garden, Hale – Case Study

Bespoke Platform Garden – Hale, Greater Manchester


This modern garden design was done by working closely with the clients over a consultation and research period of 4 months. The overall landscaping project took 3 to 4 weeks to complete.

The clients current garden was a neglected space that they wanted to get more use out of. They had removed existing stairs to the upper level but didn’t know where to start with replacing them due to the severe level changes and permanent fixtures in the garden such as the garage. 


Client brief:


  • The client loved the industrial style and wanted to keep the garden modern and sleek in look to tie in with the interior of their house
  • The client loves planting and wanted lots of lush foliage and colour to contrast with the modern look


Design and Landscaping


  • Dreamscape Gardens designed a new set of bespoke metal fabricated steps leading out from the upper level.
  • This had a mesh base with lots of shade loving planting underneath giving allowing lots of light into the lower level.
  • The existing area behind the garage was transformed into a more usable space with a bespoke log store, fresh gravel and new planting.
  • The couple love the feel and look of a more industrial design so metal was the obvious choice.
  • We also added composite cladding to cover the existing walling and finished it off with reclaimed scaffold board tops.  
  • A larger patio was designed for entertaining space.
  • We chose minimal large format Kota black limestone paving which will contrast the planting and warm colours of the timber beautifully.
