Garden Design - Purley, Surrey
- A typical London urban garden
- Existing wire fences offer little privacy from neighbours
- Space was recently cleared and is empty apart from an established Mountain Ash.
- Ground is slightly uneven and garden is on two levels
- The solution creates a tranquil and peaceful area, designed to offer the user the option of using the space in a variety of ways.
- The area directly behind and to the side of the house will be decked, creating a dining and entertaining area in which pots and planters could feature.
- Both sides of the garden would be bounded with new fences, topped with trellis to encourage climber growth and create a more natural boundary to the space.
A winding gravel path, edged with cobbles, will take you on a journey through densely planted beds, via a circle of gravel designed to accommodate a medieval-style, wrought iron, gazebo. The path is traversed at intervals by wooden arches, upon which scented climbers could be trained, which serve to break up the space and lend height and a sense of drama to the space.
