This East London roof garden, has little of interest to offer and the client is looking for a solution to the space. They had little money and would likely be looking to complete the project themselves using found bits and pieces as garden materials. The existing paving will probably need to remain as this covered a large area, plus the cost to remove it also tends to be expensive. Earth Designs suggested a graffiti piece was done on marine ply on the left hand boundary wall. A found bike planted out would provide interest and look whimsical in this space. An existing neon sign will be added too and is a great fit in the area. The main area to the the terrace was to be covered in an artificial lawn, with two eclipses in the opposing corners. The first adjoining the house would provide a low level seating in the form of a day bed. Constructed from pallets, this area will have seating and an interconnected table on casters slotted into the space. Occasional seating in the form of outdoor beanbags will decorate the space. On the opposite side will be a similar curved bench and an elliptical dining table would provide opportunity for eating. The day bed could also be utilised for storage. A large silver birch tree, in a lightweight container such as the fibreglass was to be sited on the right, where the railway line ran. Two secondary large planting pots would sit next to it to allow for a real sense of green to the space. Incorporated in the raised beds on left hand side would be further storage which the client can place cushions or other garden essentials into.
