Secluded City Oasis

By London based garden designer Maïtanne Hunt MSGD, MBALI. Maïtanne used every available surface to create this small city haven.

With only 11m2 to play with, a certain dose of ingenuity and boldness was required to bring the wow factor to this tiny garden and transform it into the outdoor haven it now is.

With space at such a premium, it was important to keep the design simple and capitalise on every vertical surface to install abundant lush green walls.

A slimline vertical feature was incorporated as a nod to tropical waterfalls and introduces the soothing sound of water.

Large pale natural stone slabs with linear detailing of small black pebbles create a pleasant contrast and bring an impression of spaciousness.

Small bird boxes hidden in the foliage provide habitat opportunities whilst careful lighting adds dramatic effect at night.
