A Luxury new build house within the exclusive St Johns Wood, London. Bartholomew Landscaping was not successful in securing the landscape design element first time round.
However, the property was finally sold in 2016 to an existing client who disliked the mundane formality of what had been designed and installed. This simply consisted of two hedges in varying heights around the perimeter and a lawned area.
Bartholomew landscaping were appointed to redesign a complete new family garden, which would provide the clients with not only a beautiful outlook visually, but one which excited the senses in terms of planting and all year round interest as well as comfortable entertaining.
Ultimately a functional family garden that would reflect and compliment the house.
Our new design included the planting of substantial evergreen Holme Oaks towards the rear boundary to provide privacy from overlooking properties, thus creating a more intimate space. A feature stone clad wall was also included with a central sculpture location by Michael Speller.
This gave the garden much more depth and provided a feeling of spaciousness. Large hedges were replaced by the introduction of planting borders and perimeter pathways in which to take you on a journey.
The dining area was brought into the garden and surrounded by structural box cubes interspersed with flowering planting.
A green wall was used in the lower level with a beautiful handmade pot and feature tree.
The Kettal furniture collection was imported directly from Spain and consisted of a dinning arrangement to seat ten comfortably, sofa with side tables and loungers all finished in a beautiful shower proof fabric.
The front garden and main entrance were softened with the introduction of a specimen Parrotia mature tree, handmade pots from the Atelier Vierkant range with soft flowing planting that provided all year round interest.
Existing sculptures have been relocated and a discreet subdued lighting and irrigation installed throughout the scheme.
Needless to say the clients are now absolutely delighted with the finished garden.
