Front garden design

It's always a challenge to come up with a front garden design that doesn't look like a supermarket car park, and that retains some interest when the cars aren't there. 

Here the mixture of laying patterns and the inclusion of a gravel circle solves the aesthetic problem. The drainage had been difficult, with the garage regularly flooding. The solution was to use water permeable paving, new slot drains, planted borders to absorb rain, and a soak-away under the gravel. The finished design is ready for printing and the addition of colour. Practical and beautiful!
