Town Garden,

The challenge was to re-energise a dark and neglected space surrounded by high, rendered brick walls at the rear of a terraced Victorian house. A new garden would be in constant view from the client's office. Our aim was to first maximise the potential of the space by introducing colour - we chose a rich terracotta for the back wall - and welsh slate as a surfacing material to balance the existing decking.

The planting scheme was kept simple: fresh and green throughout the year and yet with the capacity to surprise and delight with restrained dashes of rich colour and soft flower as the seasons progress.
