A family garden design in Wanstead, East London. We were asked to create a relaxed garden for the family to spend time, playing games, enjoying outdoor dining and relaxing in the summer.
A large natural stone terrace leads from the house with space for dining and lounge furniture. From here wide steps lead down to a generous lawn ideal for sports. A small terrace is perfectly placed for watching the games, in dappled shade, provided by a simple bespoke timber pergola.
At the bottom of the garden a secret play area is hidden by curved Hornbeam hedges and includes a trampoline and large climbing frame.
The year round planting scheme has a relaxed traditional feel with areas of bright colour and scented plants to engage the children.
