We recently completed a client’s urban garden design in Broomwood Road, Battersea. Our landscapers have been landscaping and gardening in Battersea for many years, working in both garden design and construction. In Battersea, gardens come with their own unique set of design requirements. The urban gardens between Battersea and Clapham, in particular, are often quite small to the size of the house. Such size differences require careful layout design and planning to make full use of the limited space. Battersea has seen massive gentrification over the last two decades and is a great place to live and entertain. The houses have great character but many gardens lack inspiration and are sadly not used to their full potential. We work on a wide range of projects, loving to create stunning gardens both large and small. Battersea garden design has its own particular challenges, but we think we have the perfect solutions.
This project in Broomwood road is a typical Battersea garden, and in consultation with our client, we designed this built-in seat. The timberwork was to be a self-contained garden within an outdoor space. Much of the planting is arranged around, above and below the seating area. This approach left maximum space within the rest of the garden for an artificial lawn mini-football pitch and play area.
The old London stock wall is a feature which again, we find in many Battersea gardens. Our team made a decision that we would incorporate it into the design. The project also included the soft-wood batten trellis above the wall to match the contemporary tongue and groove fence panels on the side boundary. This is a garden that can be used in any season. A beautiful functional contemporary addition to the property which can be used by all the family.
