Modern Garden Design in North London
The design is inspired by modern Japanese influences. Bold lines set at a 45° angle to the house slide across the space. A patio directly outside the house will be large enough to accommodate a table and chairs as well as a large storage unit. Paved in Ebony Cloud schist paving the patio stretches across the space and is interspersed with Japanese polished pebbles and groundcover planting pockets. This patio gives way to a section of oak effect porcelain paving ‘planks’ to create contrast and create a path that stretch down the garden.
The path will in turn connect to a black limestone plank patio again set on a 45° angle. This will accommodate outdoor sofas positioned to make the most of the late afternoon sun. Punctuating the space will be decorative powder-coated aluminium pattern screens in a range of sizes and patterns. A series of these screens will also be used to disguise the existing garage. Part of the space will be given over to vegetable growing, including raised railway sleeper beds placed in an L shape. An integrated railway sleeper seat/daybed occupies the back left hand corner of the lower area.
