Belsize Park

A small rear garden designed to feel like an extension of the indoor living space with contrasting tones in shades of grey, taupe and charcoal. French-doors open out onto a natural gas fire place with an ample seating area opposite. Millboard enhanced grain decking in Smoked Oak contrasts a riven sandstone which adds texture to the otherwise contemporary theme.

Slatted trellis is painted to mirror the internal home design colour scheme and is clothed with fragrant evergreen jasmine while lavender is used near the seating areas to provide scent and encourage bee’s and pollenating insects into the garden. Planting for pollination is really important for urban garden designs as gardens in the UK now make up a valuable food source for these insects.

The planting is green and lush, designed for year round impact with highlights throughout spring and summer.
