A long garden at an angle to the house, redesigned to successfully disguise the unusual shape, so the garden appears wider and straighter.  With the sun beating down on all but a sliver from 11 am, we created raised beds in the light shade. The rendered beds support part of the top deck.

Our environmentally aware clients wanted living walls to cover acres of white render, surrounding the terraces of this two-floor apartment. This is really beneficial to air quality, creating a green oasis in central London. Automatically irrigated and planted with a verdant mixture of shade-tolerant plants, it looks stunning.

This urban space in North London was a challenge, a modern house in the middle of Georgian North London where the entrance to the large, airy, home is tucked behind a TFL substation. The thin shape and extreme level change took some thought. Our task was to make it beautiful and practical for modern family life.

This garden was a great opportunity to start from scratch, which is always fun. Working with a lovely, bold client made it even better. The carrot-orange used throughout is a strong statement. Outdoor, Outside Patio, Low Maintenance Garden, Low Maintenance Garden Design

A scrubby lawn, way too much ivy and a sad raised bed were transformed into a smart, easy to maintain space. The only thing we kept was the rather lovely weathered fence, sensitively repaired and moved where necessary.  A simple scheme of silvers and warm wood tones reflect the interior décor and create a flow from inside to out. Rough wood beds will ‘silver’ with age blending with the old fence, Geraniums and Vinca will scramble through the gaps, contrasting with architectural planting behind.

After an orangery was constructed behind this sturdy, 1930’s house, we were asked to create a patio and renovate a third of the garden inevitably affected by the building works.  Inspired by the house, a hardwood deck was designed with elegantly curved corners. The aluminium facing edges distinctive shapes. The steps effortlessly accommodate the fall in level and a planter was built into the corner of the top deck. The curves are echoed in the shape of the beds and the brick-edged patio.

Our clients invited us back for the third time. This project was to create a new patio area in their large garden, to provide entertaining and play space in the sun. We had previously created a shady Woodland Playground at the back of the plot and renovated the front garden, Kerb Appeal. Sandstone, Shady

How many plants can you get into a garden just 22 meters square? Answer: 675. Our clients are keen gardeners and had downsized from a large house with a beautiful garden, so the benchmark was high. It was also required in a short time frame to accommodate other planned building work.  Living walls are a fabulous solution to so many things: combating air pollution, maximising the planting space, covering a very old wall and providing interest at all times of the year.
