If you are lucky enough to have a garden in London, one recurring question seems to be what can we create at the end? Its often the place where little grows and is seldom used as a result. DesignBox has recently completed a garden refurbishment for a family in South London to meet this challenge.
A collection of distinct spaces was requested for the family to enjoy, including an artist's studio, a shaded seating area and a putting green. The studio and a timber pergola identify the key areas and open the invitation to visit the end of the garden. New lines of planting with lighting, including lolly-pop trees flank the garden and animate the route to the end.
Looking in to the garden from the house should now present a tantalising invitation to encourage the family to go out, experience with the garden and enjoy the fun spaces located at the end.
