Designed by Harrington Porter, the idea for this garden was to create space both equally attractive for parents and children alike. Constructing a lounge dinning area for adults to relax and a bespoke made climbing structure for the children with slides, monkey bars, climbing wall and their own hideaways. Completed with contemporary planting and a cream porcelain paving, the ideal garden for modern family living. Please enjoy this one minute video to get a full scale of the garden.
Front Garden - Bedford Park Chiswick, W4
Our latest front garden project in Chiswick W4, with traditional herringbone tiled path, buff Yorkstone paving with rope edging, harvest sawn sandstone bullnosed steps. Soft red bricks and traditional Bedford Park fencing. Finished with 3/4 bay standards.
Working on this project for a property developer, the design idea here was to create a private but modern garden to go with the completely revamped property. With the garden being split level between the first and second floors, it needed to look great from above and below. Slatted fencing wrapped around to help elongate the look of the garden. Screened with Laurel pleached trees for extra privacy. Raised beds to help create a depth and height of planting. Finished with buff Harvest sawn sandstone paving with bullnosed steps with strip lighting underneath. All the while keeping the original Acer tree that was a feature from the Original garden.
Front Garden - Grove Park Chiswick, W4
Here we wanted to restore this front garden of a traditional Victorian family home to some of its former glory but also incorporating its use for the more modern family allowing both bike and bin storage. Building a traditional Victorian black and white path and porch, with bespoke made Victorian cast Iron air brick grills with traditional Manor House railings and rope edging. For the central area aim was to create a hard surface area but also to allow rain water to drain naturally back into the ground rather than run off into the gutters. Finished with a timber slatted fence, painted bike shed and bin storage area.
Garden Remodel - Acton, W3
The challenge of this garden was the over 5ft difference in height from the back door down to the existing lawn level. The idea was to create a larger patio section up closer toward the house, to accommodate a terrace for an outdoor dinning area, whilst not disturbing the already established tree. Wide steps leading down to the lawn with different terraced level planting either side of the steps helping create a Vista view down into the garden leading to a newly constructed Office Studio. A new lawn with stepping stones, a dry stone wall and planting were all added to bring this tired garden back to life.
