A group of residents, living in a converted Victorian villa wanted to create a garden, from an unloved and unused space. It needed to be beautiful to look at, have shelter from the road, have somewhere to sit, and be very low maintenance. A large Indian sandstone terrace on three levels, helped create different areas within this sloping site. Two large beds, centred by standard trees, align with the grand bay windows. A mix of shrubs and perennials means there is colour and interest all trough the year.
