Garden design for London

Contemporary City Garden
Central London


A contemporary city garden with plenty of space for entertaining and dramatic views at night-time from the house using water and lights to create a real wow factor. But this is quite a small space that resolves the issue of a large level change by utilising it to best advantage with water and glass balustrading to help create the feeling of space.

Planting is simple and strong, lighting is important for the evening ambience and water essential to movement and focus. A garden like this will tend to be more expensive than those with a higher percentage of planting space but for the modern home they are a great way of blending the inside with the outside.
