The house-side passage is often wasted, and becomes a dreary ‘no go’ area. All to often the house-side passage is a forgotten space, a dreary corridor that becomes a dumping ground for any unwanted objects. It is rarely seen as part of the overall garden, simply a way between back and front or to the side door. Yet the potential can be considerable, particularly if the gap between the house and boundary is a reasonable one. Windows often look into the house-side passage, sometimes from the kitchen and sometimes from a living room, making the provision of a well thought-out scheme all the more important.

Sculpture is placed in gardens to provide pleasing forms or a way of marking and emphasising spaces and contrasts, as a focal point or surprise, and to give a sense of movement or stillness. Traditionally, sculpture had a certain symbolism but, in general, this is not so meaningful today.
Many people associate sculpture with traditional western forms such as large stone or lead figures from classical literature. These are too large, too grand and too steeped in the past to look at home in many of today’s small gardens.
