The brief was to create an outdoor space that was beautiful, inspiring and complemented our client’s lifestyle. The new space takes its inspiration from Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania, with layers of interconnected, multi-level decks that adds character to the space creating a dramatic garden with a stage-like, amphitheatre feeling.

The garden breaks into three separate zones for individual purposes, a large welcoming deck that serves as an extension of the house to entice guests to explore the various levels. They are met by low-level planters, a floating wood bench and a large bladed waterfall that sits against a natural stone backdrop which creates an instant sense of calmness to the area.

The next step serves as the ultimate dining and entertainment space with a motorized pergola to shade while dining and an outdoor TV embedded into a stone column, all wrapped by expensive greenery.

The final level serves two purposes. It transforms from an elevated sun deck to take advantage of the summer weather while at the same time a set of removable panels reveal a hidden state of the art hot tub for the ultimate relaxation. The use of composite decking and raised rendered flower bed creates a beautiful garden with minimum upkeep. Perfect for our client’s fast-paced lifestyle.

An oasis of calm to escape and relax after a long day.


Séamus from The Studio of Possible is a multi-talented and hugely imaginative designer. Séamus designed an exceptional garden for our family which exceeded our expectations on every level. Previously our garden had a very large slope and was left with a standard builders finish. This has now been turned into a tranquil, contemporary style haven. Our brief and our ideas were considered in great detail and Séamus was practical and applied out-of-the-box thinking with any potential barriers that came up. We were involved throughout the whole process and understood the plans in detail as we requested. Our garden is now a very special space and probably the most impressive room in the house!
