This beautiful garden in Hampstead, north London, is an excellent example of designer Lynne Marcusís brilliant interplays of architecture and natural and structural planting. Lynne Marcus Garden Design selected The Garden Builders to bring to life her vision for this elegant outdoor environment which exquisitely combines classic and contemporary design.
The generally traditional scheme cleverly incorporates modern elements, such as a slatted trellis. The natural materials and contemporary elements are set well against each other, providing balance and lovely contrasts.
The garden stands out for its recurring circular patterns, creating a soothing and relaxing vista with its gentle slopes and curves. This garden is distinctive for its complete absence of straight lines. The softening effect of the numerous bends and curves in the garden gives an atmosphere of space and tranquillity, and underplays the large amount of hard landscaping needed to achieve the design outcome. The overall effect is of a serene country garden, in spite of being smack in the middle of a big city.
