Family Garden

Highbury Hill, London


Project Brief: following the completion of a contemporary architectural extension, the owners of this stunning Highbury property were seeking design solutions for the front and back garden.

In the back garden a planting design was sought for the pre-existing garden borders that offered maximum play space for a very active family. After consultation we devised a palette of shrubs and herbaceous perennials for part-shade that would in time grow to 'spill over' and soften the border edges. 

The south facing front garden offered opportunity for a new design with hardscaping that complemented this double fronted property, offered privacy with the addition of hedging, and made the most of a beautiful specimen Magnolia tree shared with the adjacent residence.
