The British are known for their love of gardening and for being able to make the most out of seemingly small spaces. Our experts at Earth Designs have designed some truly impressive gardens for their customers in London. Their passion and green thumb is evident in their outstanding portfolio.

The owners of this terraced Victorian house wanted an elegant and stylish outdoor area with plenty of space to entertain, eat and relax. The other important factor in the client brief was privacy; something that is not always easy to maintain when your house is situated so closely to the next. The photos in this article display an original, individual, and contemporary garden design which won the owners over from the get go. It seamlessly integrates into its charming British environment, whilst maintaining an extra dose of exotic Asian charm.

This sitting area at the front section of the garden invites you to relax and is surrounded by a large geometric wooden structure with integrated shelving and benches. This unit is both a functional and decorative solution to partition the various areas of the garden off from one another. It also provides additional space for any amount of decoration and accessories.

In the far right corner of the garden is an outbuilding with an office. The design of the garden is kept simple, elegant and easy to maintain. Low ornamental hedges, high bamboo shrubs and potted plants add variety and harmony.

The view from the upper part of the garden faces the house; a juxtaposition between internal and external spaces. The lawn is surrounded by large limestone tiles. The boundary of the site is lined with bamboos, which continue the exotic touch of the garden. This provides privacy; an essential factor of the client brief.

The lighting plan has been well thought out for the best atmosphere at night time. As well as being able to add mood lighting by placing candles in between the dividers, small floodlights in the flower beds around the lawn also give the rear of the garden a soothing and cozy feel.
