Small Acton Garden

The brief for this small garden in West London was to create a stylish garden that complemented the contemporary finish to the interior with space where the family could dine, relax and play table tennis.

A hard wood deck brought the level of the garden up to the new sliding kitchen doors while creating space for dining and relaxing in the evening sun. Slatted fence panels hide the unsightly walls and unify the space while artificial turf was a low maintenance option for creating a space for table tennis. A small gabion bench catches the morning sun and provides a lovely area to enjoy a coffee and the morning papers. 

Pleached ornamental peer trees create an effective screen to nearby houses while shrubs and colourful perennials will soften the space come spring/summer. 

Low voltage LED up-lighters were used to create a stylish ambiance at night, highlighting the trees and shrubs and giving a feeling of warmth, even when viewed from indoors on a cold evening.

What our clients had to say

Hiring John was the best step we could ever have taken. Creative and with massive attention to detail, resourceful and flexible, proactive but not pushy, John not only came up with several different fantastic design options for our garden, he also helped us source the right people to implement the finalised plans. 

John has the all important personal touch. He really listened to our brief and came up with creative solutions as well as addressing any challenges before we even knew they might be an issue. All designed and completed in a record time too - we are thrilled.
