Private Garden, North London
This private garden in North London surrounds a new build house with a contemporary, utilitarian aesthetic. The brief was for a planting plan which the architect owner could adapt to his final design and budget decisions. The design incorporated a majority of low maintenance evergreen shrubs and perennials with an outdoor entertainment area, highlighted with a vine covered pergola, raised vegetable beds and wall-trained fruit. Additional fruit tree planting was designed to be surrounded by meadow grass adjacent to a good sized lawn for children’s play. A screen of large ornamental trees and shrubs was planned along the rear boundary to provide privacy.
