A garden refurbishment to the grounds of an elegant Regency town house located in the prestigious Notting Hill Gate area of West London. The historic garden walls inspired the concept of ‘Walled City Gardens’ by creating a series of terraced gardens which perfectly compliment the formality and elegance of the town house.
The Summer Garden contains formal hedging elements to give the garden a sense of enclosure, and Yew columns to the threshold of the garden echo the formality and structure of the existing wall piers. A sculptural piece set upon a stone plinth provides a focal point within the garden.
In the Old Rose Garden the existing walls contain the garden and form a classic backdrop for an abundance of climbing roses interlaced with Clematis and Jasmine. The Terrace is reminiscent of a traditional walled kitchen garden; the planting is productive incorporating a variety of herbs.
The geometric design to the Front Garden is accentuated through the use of Yew columns which add height and formality. The central bed planted with specimen Rose bushes is enclosed with a low border of clipped Box.
