Upon arrival at this site the garden was completely unusable, it was a vast mud slope that descended all the way to the house. There was no space to entertain or enjoy and it was dangerous for family and guests due to 2m unretained drops.

I designed the retaining wall for the terraces be built with earth bags using mud excavated from the site. I planned to use this method because it is strong, eco friendly and cost effective, saving £1000's when compared to other retaining wall methods. The wall was finished with cob render which is traditional in the area and can be seen in many properties in Cullompton and the surroundings of Devon.

This transformation now means that the space is safe and accessible for family and friends. It is now ready to enjoy and has plenty of functional area to invite guests and entertain.
