Situated in a quiet residential street, this town house garden was mainly a blank canvas with very limited space for outside dining and entertaining. The owners required screening from overlooking properties, a large terrace area, a small garden store, plenty of planting including some roses and a route to wander around the garden.
Now a raised terrace for outdoor dining overlooks a lower grass pathway. This is flanked with borders filled with a cool palate of lush planting, tones of greens, whites, creams, limes and purples. Pittosporum act as repeated sentinels, giving structure and winter interest. The borders are bursting full of buddleia, white roses, penstemon, salvia, alcamilla mollis with hydrangeas to give long seasonal interest. Crab apple trees Malus Everest have been planted along a new contemporary fence to provide soft screening from the overlooking properties, giving both spring blossom and tiny orange fruit in the autumn for ever changing interest. An attractive painted garden shed acts as a focal point at the end a grass pathway, which leads you on to meander around the garden
A trellis archway planted with climbing roses draws the eye to the front garden. Here, the colour palette changes to warm pinks, blues and purples. Cherry trees, Pink Perfection with their wonderful spring display give dappled privacy from nearby houses. An evergreen hedge, Prunus lucitanica, divides the garden from the road and variegated euonymus domes provide good contrast against the dark leaved hedge. A pretty garden seat nestles in the borders full of lavender, deep purple penstemon, nepeta and slavias with accents of soft pink roses to add height and contrast.
A lovely garden haven in which the owners can now relax, entertain & enjoy the feeling of privacy.
