We recently completed a client’s garden 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.
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.
