Project: The affordable redesign of a city back garden
This established garden in London was overgrown, uncoordinated and lacked structure and interest. The owner was so fed up with it that she didn’t really go into it anymore. The shrubs were getting out of hand and made the garden feel gloomy and claustrophobic.
Over the course of a few days the garden was transformed by pruning back the trees and shrubs properly to open up the garden, some existing plants were rearranged, some others discarded and more appropriate ones introduced. Definition was added by edging the lawn and creating a complimentary shaped path to the shed and a seating area to catch the morning sun was added.
