Small Backyard Garden in Greenwich, London

By Blackheath based garden designer Catherine Clancy MSGD. A family garden created for a New Zealand couple with two young children, in a small back yard in Greenwich, London.

Sleeper raised beds double up as seats (space saving garden idea).Smooth decking provides a safe play surface, soft grey limestone paving gives a contemporary look.

Raised beds were filled with New Zealand native plants. One small bed became the edible garden.

The level of the garden lowered to create a sunken secluded paved area. Contemporary trellis provides privacy without blocking the light.
