This imposing central London garden complementing a grand house combines formal and naturalistic planting, with the formal aspects closest to the house, and turning increasingly rural towards the rear. The formal landscaping and planting elements consist of clipped box hedging, standard bay trees and sawn York stone. Mixed perennial planting incorporating evergreen specimens soften the hardscaping of sawn stone paving and raised beds with dry stone wall effect.
As per client requirement, the garden features a large lawn and play area and a supplementary entertainment and formal seating space next to the striking glass, wood and stone family pavilion designed by the house’s architect. Bespoke, ornamental trellis encloses the garden space for privacy. The garden is lit at night by a range of Hunza lighting controlled by the main Lutron system.
