Georgian townhouse terraced gardenContemporary Garden, London

Small moves in this steeply terraced rear garden created new brick planters for herbs close to the kitchen, new storage bult under the BBQ and to the side of the doors, two new sunny sitting spots and a small veg planter. Two new olive trees create privacy and partially conceals the new bike shed, which will also be soon covered by a fragrant evergreen climber. The existing hard landscape was expertly cleaned, repaired and then matched to create the new sofa area and brick planters. The veg patch is in full sun and provides a lovely spot to relax. Existing climbers were incorporated into the design, so that when the new trees and perennials were added the whole garden looked mature very quickly. Evergreen trees, topiary and herbs provide year round interest. The remaining perennials add a cool white and purple palette, with touches of apricot in every growing season.
