Larger Garden


This is a larger London garden with a significant slope away from the house. There were established and shrubs, some of which the owners wanted to keep.

The brief was particularly focused towards creating a design for a large pond to be visible from all ground floor windows overlooking the garden. The existing cramped outdoor seating area was to be extended to improve the terrace for entertaining. A new path and second seating area was required to benefit from evening sun.

I designed a raised pool built of natural stone blocks with a flight of elegant steps to cope with the level change, leading to the main area of the garden.
By doing this we were able to significantly level out the slope.

To add movement and sound to the pond, a specially commissioned large shallow pottery bowl to sit on the coping stones with water is pumped in to spill out over a lip into the pond. A London stock brick path leading to a small sun terrace at the top of the garden linked the two seating areas. Planting was to kept simple and fairly traditional, made up of a mixture of scented shrubs and herbaceous perennials.
