The design of this uniquely located garden was intended to maximise the spectacular views over Hampstead Ponds. Working with architects Stiff + Trevillion and Zoe Moore Interior Design, the planted garden needed to reflect the contemporary new additions to the house whilst also blending in with the borrowed view of the natural Heath beyond. New planting was added to include a warm colour palette of flowering herbaceous perennials, undulating Osmanthus x burkwoodii cloud hedging and a flowering Magnolia tree with lifted canopy that can be 'looked through' when at a seated level.  Bespoke timber bench seating was commissioned along with new boundary trellis and discreet garden storage, all of which will be left to weather to a natural silvery grey colour. 

The front garden had a more traditional feel using a Yorkstone paver that connected with the style of the original architecture, and included the placement of a patinated bronze coloured planter at the front entrance.

This garden was designed for Harris Murray-Wicks, architects Stiff + Trevillion and Zoe Moore Interior Design.
