Modern Garden, Hampstead
The front garden and driveway are landscaped in seamless detail with sophisticated blue-grey granite. Rich planting smoothes and softens the space. A ‘black planet‘ puddlestone sculpture makes a bold statement. After dark, light permeates the stones from within, illuminating the planet’s core to dramatic effect.
The back garden is for entertaining and relaxing with outdoor sofas and a sleek kitchen. Smooth York stone pavers flow through the spaces, connecting the garden to the house, and a black granite water feature provides a focal point. The lawn is constructed on top of a rear basement extension, affording a sense of openness. Pleached trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses bring subtle changes in colour throughout the year and moments of bright accent.
Cedar trellis unifies the boundaries and complements the cedar shed, which has been designed by an architect.
A luxurious roof garden with lavenders, thyme and sedums provides a private space to feel connected to nature in the heart of London.
