Front Garden, North East London
The front garden had too much foliage and was generally overgrown and the lawn area was patchy and dry.
Our client requested:
- a crisp clean look to the garden.
- a more open aspect providing a greater level of security.
- visual connections with her neighbour’s garden.
Retaining the ‘rock feature’ was important to me. I felt it would preserve the established character of the garden. I was also keen to keep the Photinia and Euronymous bushes as they are well established. – TJ
We removed two cropped Conifers, letting in more light and we laid fresh turf to re-invent the lawn area.
After a clean-up the existing rock feature was presented in a contemporary display.
The Photinia and Euronymous bushes were clipped and shaped to create elegance and retain height and structure.
We introduced purples, deep reds and variegated and textured greens to the garden. Finally, planted bulbs added ‘seasonal interest’ and created a low maintenance space.
The new garden has invited positive responses from passers-by and neighbours alike – TJ
