Dulloch Park, Dunfermline – retaining wall and steps

This project involved redesigning a fairly typical garden at a new build property in Dunfermline.  The garden was predominantly heavy clay which had poor drainage, and a steep slope that made poor use of the space available.

We built two dry stone terraces and a small raised bed to provide planting space. The stone steps gave the garden a visual focal point as well as providing access to the terraces. The remaining area of the garden was paved with Indian sandstone slabs.  Sweeping curves were incorporated into the walls to provide a contrast to the regular, square pattern of the slabs.

The stone and slabs were chosen to match the colours of the property.
