"I use Shoot daily to give plant care advice to clients."
– Ben Lannoy , Garden Designer
This small contemporary garden was designed to beautifully compliment the ultra modern interiors of this Victorian terrace in Highgate, north London.
Large folding kitchen doors open onto a paved white orcelain tiled dinning area. Scented kitchen herbs planted in a rise bed to the side of the kitchen frame the patio while a black Basalt path divide deep borders of meadow-like planting.
This low- maintenance family garden has a hidden seating area in the far end of the garden that was designed with an outdoor handmade sofa and deep timber steps to act as extra seating to enjoy the garden’s late afternoon sun.
A large summerhouse painted in a combination of warm Farrow & Ball colours provides essential storage space.
