DULWICH

Before

 

As my client's children are growing up, life has entered a new chapter requiring a fresh look at the use of the garden.  My client’s brief was to create different socialising spaces, mood lighting and an exciting planting scheme, incorporating the existing hot tub and a smaller lawn area.

 

After

 

Firstly the existing dimensions of the patio were changed, to allow for a greater dining terrace framed by a Grillo kitchen. The hot tub deck was also extended using cedar to allow for a more sociable area. An off centre path leads through the lawn to another casual seating area at the back of the garden with a Corten steel fire pit. Enclosing this space is a multi-stem Silver Birch which contrasts beautifully with a Corten steel panel wall.  The garden is planted with a palette of blues, mauves, whites and pinks for continuous colour and scent through the year.
