Chelsea Garden

The essence of this contemporary London garden was to create an outdoor space that complimented the house and its beautifully crafted interior whilst providing a backdrop for the demands of family life.

This restrained design wraps around the house on three sides. Tall hedges, clipped fine leaved shrubs and elegant trees form the structure of this scheme with hard surfaces kept to a minimum. A restrained palette of white flowered perennials and ferns soften the clipped evergreens whilst providing year round interest.

Whilst the front garden is very much a setting for this beautiful home, the rear garden provides a perfect place for socialising. A sunken limestone terrace is surrounded by the rich green textures of the garden with bespoke Iroko furniture the focus for entertaining.
