Family Garden Design Queens Park
This garden is unusually big by London standards, which was just as well given the brief: a dining area for 8 to 10 people, a raised deck for reading, a separate lounging area, a kitchen garden, a lawn and a meadow, to name just a few!
The garden was dominated by over-sized trees at the back, which significantly enclosed the space. Unfortunately protected by a Tree Preservation Order, the trees could at best be pruned. Pollarding them and adding height to the garden itself through a pergola that links the ornamental garden to the prairie-style garden successfully re-balanced the proportions of the space, opening it up.
Mixed borders in pink and white and a Buddha sculpture chosen by the client complement this contemporary, yet serene scheme.
