The brief for this garden in Notting Hill was for as few straight lines as possible. Working alongside Barroll Webber architects, a Flemish brick path was laid to connect the two terraces to the back gate, which leads out to the communal gardens.
Around the edges of the path, giant box balls were planted, to ensure year round evergreen structure, and handmade Belgian clay pots filled with roses, lavenders and alliums were placed at irregular intervals and at varying heights, to provide bold splashes of colour. 30 year old espaliered pear trees were planted along the sides to frame the garden and lead the eye out to the communal gardens, and an infinity edge water feature set in sandstone was built, to create a focal point in the centre.
Custom made Lutyens benches were made to echo the curves of the box balls and the garden is lit at night by patinated bronze finished gatepost and wall lanterns.
In 2016 the front garden and parking area was design and built, to match the rear garden, with additional mature yew hedges to screen the garden from the street
