Most inner city gardens are overlooked and if your someone that values your privacy this can be a problem. This garden needed privacy and it had no colour. Almost a blank canvas first we needed to remove the large old summer house and create a colourful garden with different areas for sitting at different times of day.
We needed to make sense of the large patio outside the modern bi-fold doors. A large covered extension to the kitchen dining room was built giving shelter, privacy and a usable space with storage.
We used pleached Pyrus Chanticleer, or ornamental pear trees. These act as a hedge on stilts giving flower and colour during the year as well as blocking the view of the neighbours windows.
As you can see from the bottom of the garden the neighbours on the left almost disappear and when your on the patio the neighbours behind become obscured.
This garden has a mass of colourful planting during the summer. We also used a backbone of round box balls for winter structure. The roses are scented adding that extra dimension to the central seating area.
At the bottom of the garden is another simpler pergola. This gives another choice of seating area for the late evening or early morning and a different view to the garden.
