London garden design best of 2015

A vibrant planting design and total tranquility with views over the beautiful river. We are very lucky to have a client who is also an incredible photographer and sends us regular updates!

2. Richmond Garden Design

It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a great client to create a garden that was an extension of their personality and their home. The looks great all year and although not many clients are happy to give up a lawn we think that the composition of the reclaimed timber deck and the intensity of the planting more than makes up for it. The garden was also printed in a 5 page feature in Homes and Gardens November 2015 (see our press page for details) and was our 2nd most popular image in Instagram.

3. Small Garden design Camden

The most popular image of one of our Living walls according to the public who pressed like! This tiny Camden garden design was designed to keep adults, children and 2 cats happy – a tall order in such a small space. The Living wall is the focal point from a stunning architect design glass extension from the ground floor to the bedrooms.

The Living wall focal point allowed maximum plants to be included in the garden whilst leaving as much space for play as possible.


4. Fulham contemporary Garden Design

This small narrow garden design is big on entertaining space and style. With seating for 8 dinner guests and masses of flowers in summer it ticks all of the boxes for making tiny gardens an extension of your home.
