- About us
Our Client had recently moved into this prime period property, only a few yards from Hyde Park, just off the Bayswater Road. The property had no garden as such, occupying the end position of a cobbled mews.
This charming 18th century cottage on Hampstead’s Frognal was in desperate need of a garden makeover to help maximise its rental potential, following the refurbishment by its new owner.
Without doubt this amazing garden is the largest and most technically demanding project we have undertaken, but it has been the meeting of these challenges, which has ultimately reaped enormous rewards for both the clients and ourselves.
The design brief for this garden was to provide a modern contemporary space that would complement and extend the recently renovated interior, but also to provide a taste of Sao Paulo and south east Brazil for this Anglo-Brazilian couple’s new home.
Whilst size is not important, small gardens do bring their own particular challenges for the garden designer, which must be addressed and overcome in order to maximise the potential for your personal enjoyment.
The project at Queens Park London NW6, is the garden design that has required the most accurate construction methods, has needed the most attention to all of the details and as a result has ultimately been one of the most fulfilling.
This garden was another very enjoyable project for the team and myself. The client wished to create two distinct areas in the new garden; an area of decking to lead out from the house which would make a sheltered sun terrace in this south facing garden and then a barbecue and dining area which would be surrounded by planting.
This was quite a challenging project mostly due to the sheer lack of space. The gardens in this particular area of Clapham are small and in most cases the houses have been split into 2 or 3 flats.
This was a really enjoyable project to work on and as can be seen by the “before” photographs, has completely transformed the front of this large town house in Wandsworth.
Whilst at first glance this is a fairly simple garden, it is probably one of my favourite projects that I have worked on over the last few years and this is for a couple of reasons.
