Formal Town House Garden
This was a long thin walled garden behind a pretty terraced house with a straight path, with overgrown narrow beds and a patchy lawn. The client wanted a Roy Strong-influenced design with a very formal layout which had to retain a practical route through the garden to the car park space at the end.
The solution was to divide the space into sections, each with a different layout and colour theme: a paved terrace wrapping around the house with hot colours, a square pattern of slate and setts with predominantly pinks, a circular white garden with box edging, a blue garden with stone walls, a tropical woodland under a large conifer etc. Many of the materials were reclaimed from the garden and given a new lease of life.
