Garden for large Victorian house

By London garden designer Claudia de Yong. A large Victorian House on the edge of London had an overgrown garden and a very uninteresting terraced patio which the owners were not using properly or happy with.

Now clay brick pavers form a small area of paving in the centre for the table to sit on. The pavers extend around the house to form a path along the back of the kitchen in order to join the side extension.

A combination of herbs, climbers and soft muted perennials gives the whole area a much more inviting and welcoming place to sit out and enjoy family meals.

The rest of the garden was also redesigned to include a pergola, stone path and dry stone wall to the east side with fruit trees in the lawn to form a small orchard. A swing seat at the back was nestled between cob nut trees and silver birch.
