This garden compliments a beautiful Arts and Crafts styled house which has recently been transformed by a double height glazed rear extension. Set within an historic orchard once part of Blackheath itself, the garden is designed around one of the few remaining apple trees of this former orchard.
The completed garden is divided into three ‘rooms’, complimenting the Arts and Crafts philosophy of treating the garden as a continuation of the rooms of the house. The first, adjacent to the house, is the formal terrace with brimming water pools where a majority of the outside dining and entertaining takes place. The informal garden forms the second room and sits centrally, providing a south facing sun terrace wrapped in planting to ensure privacy. The third and final room is the woodland located at the bottom of the garden which forms a natural habitat of low maintenance where wildlife now flourishes.
In the front garden, herringbone brick paving, soft planting and hand forged gates complete the scheme.
Completed May 2014.
