South London Garden

This award winning South London Garden was strongly influenced by the client's and designer's love of Japan. The intention was to combine elements of Japanese design and style to create a modern garden for city living.

Large glazed windows slide back to reveal a lower terrace with a cantilevered cedar bench and outdoor kitchen. To one side there is a decorative panel of charred timber that provides a rich backdrop for the lush planting.

A path of silver granite sleepers winds its way through the main part of the garden. This is densely planted with many Japanese species to give a strong naturalistic effect. The appearance may be subtle but closer inspection reveals intricate details and textures.

At the rear of the garden is a raised terrace surrounded in planting. This is a secluded area for relaxation with a generous sofa and fire pit for evening warmth. Key features of the garden are illuminated at night to spectacular effect.
