​Balham, SW17

Our clients were busy professional people that wanted us to create a design to transform their small unused space into a garden that they could use day and night.

We mirrored the contemporary interior style of their house through into the garden, using a simple pallet of plants. Predominately green plants were selected for their different shades and textures; inter-planted with splashes of colour for year-round-interest. The newly painted black fences dispersed the boundaries and a circular decking cantilevered from a framework to give the appearance of it floating over the interlocking circular lawn and planting below.

Soft lighting was installed to bring the garden to life at night, highlighting the architectural tree ferns and circular shapes of the topiary box balls. Our client selected a chic pink set of garden furniture to finish off the design.
