© MyLandscapes the complete portfolio modern garden design and build service North London

I design and build contemporary gardens, landscapes and roof terraces throughout London. In the portfolio you can find projects featuring new trends in modern gardens, from a small patio design to larger family gardens, with a major speciality in roof gardens design. In town gardens, I have always been asked for low maintenance contemporary designs and this has evolved into an important element of all my projects. I offer a design and installation full build service in London creating contemporary cutting edge garden design.

Contemporary garden design in town often calls for low maintenance; a small courtyard garden ought to feel spacious; large open land needs terraces with comforting human scale. Yet every outdoor room, be it a secluded contemporary courtyard, a mediterranean garden or a soaring roof terrace, needs to relate to the landscape beyond. The feeling of completeness we find in beautiful contemporary gardens, regardless of size or location, derives from a connection to their surroundings: a sense of place that gives tranquillity and peace.

Low maintenance planting design

It is important to find out the level of gardening experience the client has and whether they will tender the maintenance to a professional, as this will determine the complexity of the design. Working in a contemporary vernacular I tend to use simple, bold textural drifts. This has evolved hand in hand with clients needing low maintenance gardens to suit the way we live today.

When low maintenance is the key for a client’s easy gardening life there are certain things I try and avoid: complicated pruning, perennials needing constant division and lifting and flora that require too much winter protection.

Many evergreens provide the visual focal points needed to choreograph modern garden spaces. The correct positioning in sun or shade, soil, drainage, watering and feeding lead to high performance and ultimately low maintenance I select all specimens myself, hands on, at the nurseries. There could be no better way to assess a specimen and group it with others to experiment with a composition and assure that the clients receive the best possible quality.
