For this small Streatham garden we needed to create the perfect place in which to entertain. The owner is a busy professional who travels massively and who wanted a garden that could instantly look good on arrival home; daytime or evening.
What was an untended space has turned into a small pearl. All the owner has to do is open the doors, put the cushions out, turn on the lights and the garden becomes a perfect place for a gin and tonic. We used fine limestone paving, cedar wood bench seating, rendered raised beds and we clad the fencing with horizontal lathes – to fabulous effect.
