Small informal garden

The client required a full re-design of their garden at their home in Brixton. The challenge was to produce an informal design in a small area which would feel organic with a Mediterranean theme.






The garden was to be as an outdoor eating/entertainment area and a place to relax and unwind, and potentially sun bath when the British weather allows it. It was important that the garden was child-friendly, and have space for children to play. Some herbs were be grown near to the house, other planting was attractive to birds and bees.
