Victorian Terrace Transformation

The Brief

The garden must be an oasis of calm, containing spaces for relaxing and eating as a family. The garden should be low maintenance as the owners work full-time and have other priorities in their spare time. Advantage should be taken of the orientation of the garden.


Close observatation of how the clients used the existing space, coupled with a detailed assessment of the solar trajectory revealed that the shed had to go. Once this had been agreed, a modern design, reflecting clients tastes was generated.

The finished garden

The clients walk through the space, enjoying the journey. They relax at the end of a busy day on the sundowner deck, surrounded by lush planting.

Client thoughts

Working with Katherine Lee Garden design has been a faultless and enjoyable experience. From our initial meeting, where Katherine’s professional yet friendly personality made my family feel instantly at ease, to our design process where she exceeded our dreams of what was possible within our garden and beyond. Katherine checks in regularly with us now, helping us pick the very best materials and plants for our project and her efficient manner means our project is hassle free and enjoyable.
