Small private garden with a Mediterranean feel

By London garden designer Charlotte Rowe. This little South facing garden in West London had tons of potential to be an elegant and pretty entertainment space.

To make it look a bit more spacious, it was decided to break up the area with a curved old stock brick wall and using a combination of grey Indian sandstone and granite setts. To keep within budget, much of the old fence and trellising would have to stay, so these were spruced up by painting them a dark graphite colour, making them fade into the background.

The grey and buff hard landscaping palette was combined with a white and purple planting palette. Two existing trees, were underplanted with shade loving plants including Hydrangea macrophylla 'Teller White', Pittosporum tobira Nanum, Liriope muscari 'Monroe White', Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle', Schizophragma integrifolia, Aquilegia vulgaris Alba and Digitalis purpurea Albiflora.

In the curved raised beds, Lavendula angustifolia 'Munstead' and Rosmarinus officinalis are interplanted with Campanula lactiflora Alba, Alchemilla mollis and tall white lilies (Lillium regale).
