Practical, Beautiful and Useful Gardens and Outdoor Spaces
We can all identify with the hectic fast pace of life in today’s world. Wouldn’t it be perfect if when you came home from work the transition was relaxing and comfortable as well as practical, useful and beautiful?
We all know how important some down time is after a stressful day so if when you came home, you had a peaceful space to do that in, wouldn’t that make complete sense?
At Michael Lowe Designs we are passionate about helping our clients to achieve this with cost effective, practical, resilient, beautiful and sustainable solutions for their gardens and outdoor spaces, whether it be the marriage of a stunning tranquil garden with a beautiful open plan kitchen, where the result is practically seamless…
or maybe your kitchen and dining experience is Alfresco Proper so your outdoor and indoor spaces reflect and talk to each other like a delicious tasty meal!
…Or where it means having just the right space and just the right light and ambience to entertain family and guests by extending the outdoor experience late into the evening(so long as the neighbours are invited?) through the installation of a stunning natural stone patio the inclusion of a focal fire pit, bringing everyone together! Or perhaps for you, it means a sustainably sourced bespoke timber deck with mood lighting all enhanced through biophilic* design…
… perhaps it means a natural forest garden bursting with home grown fresh produce, piles of logs for wildlife and mowed paths through lush orchards and peaceful wild flower meadows where you can while away the hours during your leisure time, gazing up at the sky from your picnic blanket, just enjoying and savouring each moment while you bite into that juicy delectable homegrown apple all from the comfort of your own garden?

* Biophilia is defined as the inherent human inclination to affiliate with nature. The moral imperative of biophilia is that we cannot flourish as individuals or as a species without a compassionate and considerate relationship to the world beyond ourselves of which we are a part. Biophilic design or Biomimicry, is an extension of biophilia and incorporates natural materials, natural light, vegetation, nature views and other experiences of the natural world into the modern built environment. Think of how many patterns there are in nature and you can imagine how these patterns, shapes and forms are incorporated into biophilic design. It is when we are surrounded by these patterns that remind us of the wild that we are most at peace…
