Walled garden project
The house originally had a formal walled garden to a large Edwardian house, now divided into four dwellings.
To make the unusual space work, the garden designer specified a large paved area using Porcelain stone. This matched the kitchen floor with the new outdoor paving extending on to a wide upper area on the sand level and then down steps onto the lower terrace and skirted around the house.
A mature purple Beech hedge then divides the formal garden area from the new driveway.
The planting areas are a careful blend of contemporary and traditional planting, with summer colour and evergreen structure. The L-shaped lawn links the whole garden together to make this a lovely walled garden with sensitively positioned lighting and a Bluetooth-controlled irrigation system to keep everything growing well in dry summers.
