A CONTEMPORARY LUSH GARDEN.
This 60sqm back garden in South London had already benefited from 2 large trees which I wanted to retain to keep maturity and scale. Except for those the site was extremely neglected with a lot of work to do on the boundaries, levels and surfaces. The space was divided into 3 main areas with low hedges and surface changing from light tiles to a hardwood deck then granite chippings. The garden is surrounded by other mature, lush plants so I wanted to create a private jungle using evergreen plants that would give a sub-tropical feel. Tree ferns, bamboo, Phormium, Japanese maple, Bergenia, sedges, ferns and grasses and palms all come together in a lush composition.
