A small and shady garden in London needed to provide space to play, store toys and grow cottage garden style plants. An existing shed needed to stay but be integrated into the space and an existing patio needed to stay but have a new step to link it to the lawn.
We used softwood horizontal fencing to create a utility area at the back of the garden and screen the fence, as well as create a place for fragrant climbing plants to grow. Three obelisks give structure for sweet peas and climbing roses and fences have been renovated. Planting includes soft pink peonies, two lavender hedges, ferns, hydrangeas and other cottage garden perennials – a pink and purple picnic for pollinators.
