A main feature of this small London garden is the central tapestry lawn. My clients were after a space that was very seasonal, full of flower and immersive. A pairing of one partner’s desire for an architectural feel to the overall garden and the other’s more natural, slight desire for wilderness was how the wildflower meadow become a central feature, yet was retained by a crisp framework of hard materials. The view from the inside of the house was key and the clients wished to feel that they could experience the British seasons. The upper terrace is formed of English Yorkstone to create a space for a couple of lounge chairs to sit below the canopy of an umbrella shaped sculptural tree and look towards the ponds through the ever-changing wildflower lawn. A clipped framework of a Hornbeam hedge runs alongside the Yorkstone path, and leads you to a lower more shaded gravel area, planted with a combination of different more shade and water loving plants. A gravel opening allows a couple of chairs to be positioned overlooking the water, and an option of a fire pit for warming cooler evenings. The last three images show a selection of images if gardens created in the past few years.
