ABOUT THE PROJECT
- Dimensions: 20m x 12m – 240m2
- Build time: 3 weeks
We were commissioned to design and build this garden to aide the sale of the Courtyard flat at an exclusive residential development in Hampstead Heath. This project provided a number of garden design challenges due to both the low light levels and the very high enclosing walls.
Our design solution was to introduce a Japanese style panel wall with Cedar shingle roof detail and Shoji window to create the illusion of a courtyard in a Kyoto merchant house. The property benefited from a generous outdoor space so we built a large patio area using light coloured Silver grey granite paving to brighten the space. A Japanese water basin arrangement with granite Kasuga lantern features in a planting bed with evergreen shrubs and Acers. A Standing stone grouping and planters with tall Bamboo plants for screening completed our scope of work. The property sold shortly after we finished the garden.
