Secluded spot

While a terrace is typically attached to a house, a wooden decking on a raised level at the back of a garden can bring a similar terrace feel. I love the level of seclusion this terrace brings to the outdoor space, adding a bit of interest and creating a secret spot for whatever you want it to be. 

This backyard deck is designed by the designer and founder of Garden Club London, Tony Woods.

Tony built a wooden terrace using a sustainably sourced cedar fence for the walls and locally sourced scaffolding boards for the deck. ‘This terrace is designed to create privacy, attract wildlife, pollinators and create biodiversity in the urban environment,’ says Tony. ‘There’s an atmosphere of stepping into a country garden.
