Our garden loving clients in St Albans asked for a redesign in a contemporary style. With strong geometry, the new design creates different areas to encourage use of the whole garden. The low maintenance decking and paving provide the perfect backdrop for the purple, blue and white planting scheme. This incorporates anemone, hydrangea and hellebores in the shady planting beds with lavender, salvia and verbena in the sunnier areas.
This contemporary garden in west London was designed to be sympathetic to our client’s new modern extension. The two patio areas give space for relaxing and entertaining whilst the lawn area is small for easy maintenance. The grey tones of the granite paving and boundary screening provide an excellent backdrop for the planting scheme. This includes silver birch, olive and plants which flower in shades of blue, purple and white.
Following an architect’s redesign of their house and garden in Crouch End, North London, our clients asked us to advise on the renovation of the remaining planting. Working with a palette of white and pink flowering plants, we added luscious hydrangeas, palms and beautiful David Austin roses to create planting which is both elegant and exotic.
We were asked to design the garden of this beautiful Grade II listed building, which had become rather overgrown. Our scheme is sympathetic to the traditional style of the house and incorporates several existing mature plants such as camellia and a spectacular fig tree. We added topiary to give evergreen structure and under planted with perennials and spring flowering bulbs to create interest throughout the year.
This garden redesign was part of the major refurbishment of this beautiful Mill Hill house. Our clients wanted their garden to be a large entertaining space, combined with a family friendly scheme. Our large, curved patio terrace uses brick which complements the traditional style of the property. The porcelain paving is low maintenance and mirrors the contemporary internal styling.
Our garden loving clients asked us to design a roof terrace for their chic Marylebone town house apartment. We created additional privacy using bespoke contemporary slatted screens to the rear of the garden. The use of light weight, lead look planters provide ample planting opportunities, without compromising the integrity of the roof structure. The Mediterranean style planting is wind and drought tolerant and thrives in this hot and sunny space.
Our clients for this project wanted to create a cool, contemporary entertaining space, from which they could enjoy the fantastic views over the Hertfordshire countryside. The focal point pool is surrounded by granite paving and iroko decking. On cooler days the garden can be enjoyed from the stylish iroko clad garden room that looks out over the garden.
This large Hertfordshire garden was designed to accompany the clients' stunning new home. A wide patio entertaining area includes dining and lounge style seating and overlooks a focal point water feature. A second patio area dissects the garden and creates the perfect spot for catching sun later in the day. A purple and white planting scheme softens the garden while evergreen shrubs create structure through the year.
We redesigned this multi-level garden in order to make better use of the space for our clients. The extended patio dining area and kitchen blend with traditional style of their home, whilst having a contemporary edge. Frameless glass balustrades surrounding the terrace give an unbroken view to draw the family down to the mid terrace seating are, where they can enjoy cosy winter evenings around the central fire table.
The small courtyard garden of this grade II listed property was previously an overgrown, uninspiring space. Our garden redesign includes porcelain tiles to lighten the area, planters and balustrades, selected to complement this period property. The planting is soft and traditional in style and includes structural topiary, lavender, salivias and geraniums.
We were also commissioned to design the planting for the front garden of this exclusive London property development. The site benefits from a warm, south facing garden which we filled with sun loving lavender, evergreen blue grasses, purple geranium and exotic Phormium. The scheme gives the garden year round structure and interest, thus ensuring that prospective buyers always have an excellent first impression of the house.
We were commissioned by London property developers to design gardens for their new exclusive family homes in Ealing. Working with a team of architects, builders and consultants, we created a basement garden for the rear of the show house, designed to maximise the potential of a compact space. A low maintenance planting scheme ensures that the garden always looks its best.
This roof top apartment boasts a large outdoor terrace, previously a little dated in style. We were enlisted to design a new roof garden terrace to complement the owners' impressive new extension. Porcelain tiled flooring is used both inside and out to blend the two spaces and light weight bespoke planters were commissioned for the new drought tolerant planting.
Following a complete house renovation, our clients asked us to redesign their long narrow, sloping garden. Our redesign breaks the space into a series of ‘rooms’ on different levels, which gradually lead you through the garden, from the dining area, up past the focal point water feature to the retaining gabions at the rear, ensuring that the whole garden is used. The borders were planted with a white flowering scheme of shrubs and perennials.
Architects working on this small family garden in Hampstead Garden Suburb property brought us in to redesign this established garden. We created a new terrace to complement the extension to the property and reshaped lawns and borders to open the garden up. Our garden design planting scheme utilises many of the mature existing shrubs and is designed to give year round interest and colour.
Our clients were remodelling their north west London home and took this opportunity to completely redesign their back garden. The new diagonal layout, arranged over two levels, creates interest and a feeling of increased space. Black basalt paving gives a contemporary edge, complementing the minimalistic, low maintenance planting scheme.
Our clients wanted to redesign their garden to create a safe, interesting place for their young children, combined with a relaxing space for the adults. Making use of the existing ground levels, we designed a raised area at the back of the garden, home to an outdoor blackboard, sandpit and log stepping stones. The deck, carefully sited in the sunniest spot in the garden, gives mum and dad a relaxing seating area.
Our Hampstead clients brought us in to add life to their previously dark and uninspiring basement garden. Design using bold colour brings warmth to the space, whilst the metalwork panels add interest and reflect additional light. The new scheme is completed with shade loving plants, whose evergreen foliage will give year round structure. Now this is warm & inviting.
This sheltered London courtyard garden had great potential but was overlooked and lacked colour. We installed bespoke squared trellis screens to give added privacy, which were complemented by classical wooden planters in a matching colour. We then created a soft, pretty planting scheme which combines blue and white flowering plants with structural shrubs to give colour and interest throughout the year.
The back garden of this grade II listed home needed to be sympathetically redesigned, in order to respect the character of the property, whilst updating for the 21st century. We created new patio entertaining areas using buff sandstone paving combined with traditional clay bricks. Mature specimen plants in the existing garden, including a stunning Wisteria, were carefully retained and new planting added to create interest around the year.
This small garden in Hampstead was previously overgrown, shady and rarely used by our clients. We redesigned the space, removing the tired artificial lawn and replacing this with pale porcelain tiles which lightened the garden and made it feel larger. The overgrown planting was replaced with a soft romantic scheme, using roses, hydrangea and evergreen topiary. The garden is now an inviting space which our clients love to use.
Our client had added a basement extension to their property in Primrose Hill, thereby creating a small, dark garden, over two levels. We used whitewashed walls, soft, grey natural stone and beautiful ‘Garden Trellis’ wall panels to bring light into this garden and to open the space up. The clean lines of the raised planters create an illusion of space and the design is softened with low maintenance evergreen planting.
Our Kentish Town clients had outgrown the design of their small family garden and wanted a space which was less a football pitch and more a space for relaxing. Using a strong geometric design, we created a sunny patio area and new planting beds. The existing exotic tree ferns and palms were kept, and new shrubs and perennials added to create a colourful urban retreat which can be enjoyed throughout the year.
