Urban, City & Townhouse Garden Design in London
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.
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.
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.
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 the once stark and unloved basement courtyard garden is warm and inviting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
