Help! We need a West London garden design!
…said the email. The client was renovating a property in East Sheen West London and needed a garden to match the high spec of the interior of the property.
These clients have a West London garden design already on the back of doing extensive renovations to the property and remodelling the back of the house. They have a garden which is entirely walled, and want to make the best of the space. They have already had a garden design drawn, but felt that it wasn’t maximising the space to its full potential. I would like the view from the back of the house to be enticing and inviting as the bifold doors about the entire width of the property.
Hard and Soft Landscaping
The client wanted to get the right balance of hard and soft landscaping. Directly outside the back elevation of the house, along patio stretching the wits of the property spans the property.
To the right hand side a small barbecue area is cited with a half covered wooden bench seat well whoever is doing the barbecue in this area. To the left hand side, directly leading out from the study, is a Corton steel tank planter and a best spoke timber pergola.
Added Privacy and screening
A slatted timber panel runs up the wall, and then the slats are more evenly spread out to form the roof of the pergola. This gives shade as well as privacy and the client to complete their existing table and chairs in the area underneath this. This whole area is paved in either porcelain or sandstone. Decking then forms the lounging area, which is backed by a cedar timber screen, with a laser cut Cortan steel screen placed in front of it. This screen is the folding table tennis table and small shed.
A second seating area
Across the back of the garden, the pathway runs leading to a second seating area in the back right hand corner. To chunky oak beams intersect each other forming a cross from which two hanging chairs can be positioned for use by the younger members of the family. A quarter and still viable can also be placed in the corner, giving a fabulous visual ascetic from the back of the house.
The rest of the garden is laid to lawn. Planting in the space will be a combination of evergreen shrubs and specimens coupled with a bassist perennials in a pallet of purple and white.
