The owner of this small roof terrace wished to maximise the space in order to be able to entertain friends. In collaboration with JVB Interiors, bespoke planters and a bench were commissioned, along with iroko hardwood decking, trellis and a mirror, built into the trellis.
The colour scheme was carefully chosen to match the interior and the planting was designed to be simple, neat and stylish. Lighting was especially important; LED uplighters were attached to the trellis, and an LED strip was fitted along the inside front edge of the planters.
In the front garden, a dry stone wall was built to retain a raised bed and planted with long flowering summer perennials. Reclaimed York stone paving was softened by planting creeping thyme in the cracks of the paving.
