Back Gardens & Family Garden Design in London
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 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.
The contemporary design of this garden in Golders Green complements the internal finishes of our clients' home. Soft grey granite paving areas and iroko decking create a garden to be enjoyed on different levels. Shade loving plants thrive at the back of the garden, whilst Mediterranean shrubs and trees enjoy the sun around the patio seating area. Bold black boundaries provide the perfect backdrop to show of planting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
