Once all the landscaping was finished, the
couple added stylish furniture and accessories.
'I spent months and months beforehand
collecting items for the new garden - the only
problem was storing them,' says Ellie.
'I bought some lovely contemporary chairs
and pots from Habitat when it had sales on,
as I knew we would run out of money by
the end of the project - which, of course, we
did! I was really lucky, though, because I had a
birthday while we were doing the work and
I was given lots of plants as presents.'
Now the couple get to enjoy their stylish,
urban garden every day, all year round.
'We sit outside to eat and entertain
as much as we can. Even in the autumn
evenings, we are outdoors,' says Ellie.
'We have had so many people over since
it's been finished and they all love it. We
are even thinking of serving Christmas
dinner outside this year!'
