West Norwood Family Garden

​​
 

This family garden was redesigned to gives a sense of space for both adults and children at the same time the clients were extending their home. The view of the garden was enhanced by an oversized picture window from the kitchen onto the garden.

 

This informed the design of the iroko pergola which has a BBQ area to catch the evening sun.  The wood was stained to match the picture window allowing continuity between the house and garden.  Existing roses were relocated to climb the uprights and a Viburnum x bodnantense ‘Charles Lamont’ was planted immediately outside the window to give floral impact during the winter months which it did beautifully in its first year.

 

The Kiwi clients desired a lot of evergreen structure which helped to define areas. Designboard ‘Greenwich’ was specified to lighten the shaded terrace and provide a long-lasting, low-maintenance surface.  The front garden was also reorganised to give it some clarity of design with a Kiwi sense of welcome.

The kitchen was featured in Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine, March 2019, if you would like to see more.
