On a tight budget? This has been achieved with a recycled timber, some breeze blocks a lick of paint. The trick to the style is to stick to a limited colour palette which brings harmony - but also a great contrast in the textures of the materials.
maybe we step down into the further patio area beyond the hot tub and enclose it with some kind of short wall like this - Patio designed by Australian firm, Peter Fudge Gardens. Also love the fire bowl
I like the contrasting surfaces but not gravel because of Charlie. I also like the trelliswork on the right-hand wall. Chairs with cushions around brazier in small urban garden, clipped box balls, Mespilus germanica
