Earth Designs have years of experience working on all kinds of garden design in Kilburn. We are a skilled and reliable team of local garden designers and landscapers. On this page, we will take you through the process of designing specifically a sloped garden in Kilburn.

Garden Design Kilburn


The clients are renovating the interior of their newly purchased home. The period property, in a conservation area in Kilburn, has a large garden with several large trees around the boundary. The garden in Kilburn is on a slope and ground level is approximately 80cm from the interior floor of the house.

The boundaries are in a poor state of repair and would benefit from replacement. The clients lead busy lives and so require a low maintenance garden, including sizeable area of lawn, several hard landscaped areas for entertainment and a shed for storage.


To bridge the level change between house and garden, our garden designer in Kilburn will construct a raised deck, running the width of the property.

This deck will be large enough for a cafe style table and chairs so the garden can be enjoyed from the level adjoining the house.

Built-in steps lead down to the rest of the garden to join a larger decked patio suitable for entertaining family and friends.

A focal point as you traverse the steps will be a 1.3m tall stainless steel wall water feature nestled among planting. A central rectangular lawn will be bordered on two sides by a sandstone paved pathway.

This pathway will lead down the garden to terminate in a small rectangular paved patio in the bottom left of the space. The bottom of the garden will house a shiplap timber shed for the client’s storage. Vertical interest will be provided by several sculptural obelisks, an artwork in their own right also providing support for flowering climbers.

Mixed planting of shrubs and perennials chosen for foliage, colour and rapid growth as well as suitability to a low maintenance garden, surround the terraces and lawn.
