Belgravia garden 5 years on

BELGRAVIA GARDEN.


This tiny courtyard garden in Belgravia, central London, is only 30sqm and surrounded by high walls on all sides. The house had undergone a complete renovation retaining many traditional features. I wanted to create a simple composition that will match the flooring of the adjacent kitchen with a powerful, central focal point. The water feature therefore is quite tall yet contrasted with a small spout. The raised beds appear floating with a recess underneath. These photographs show the garden 5 years after planting with the temple bamboo reaching over 6 metres in height balancing the scale of the garden and adding much drama. As the garden is quite shaded ferns, Lilyturf and Japanese maples grow well under the bamboo.
