A short, narrow garden with typical Victorian terrace house features, including a lawn and shrub borders.

The aim was to transform this garden into a modern outdoor area that felt larger, had defined and secluded dining and lounging areas, full of colour and interest whilst providing low on-going maintenance.

The garden was set out at angles to increase the sense of space. With raised sleeper planting borders and stone paths, the garden leads you from a BBQ and dining area, across a contemporary water rill, pass a row of Betula Jacquemontii Birches and onto a decked summerhouse area for catching the sun in this south-east facing garden.

The planting is a mix of ornamental grasses, ferns, Heucheras and flowering herbaceous specimens for all year round interest.
