Traditional Garden Designs in London
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
