The Garden Retreat: A Place For Living was designed to be an oasis of calm and tranquillity – representing how an outdoor area can make us calmer, happier people. By using our natural stone wall cladding TIER Panel System in Slate to create a low-sitting wall, Lynn demonstrates how a key feature of the garden can serve a functional purpose: ‘One of the first things I wanted to think about was how the space should be framed and contained. Using a wall with stone cladding is an easy and cost-effective way of using a quality stone product whilst giving maximum visual impact to the garden’s boundaries.’
