This award-winning project included both the front and rear gardens of this property in Kensington. The client wished to have a strong visual connection between both these spaces as they were seen in tandem through several floors of the house.
A limestone from North Africa was used throughout the scheme with subtle surface treatments applied to highlight variations in use. Planting was restricted to a tapestry of green with highlights of soft colour and scent throughout the year.
The rear garden is divided by three low stacked stone plinths and black clay pots which help to define the space creating privacy and depth. A pair of Judas trees provide dramatic vertical accents while a hedge of Podocarps forms the fine textured backdrop to the sculptural composition.
