Jenny Bloom Garden Design
Highbury Family Garden, N5
The Brief: It is rare to get a blank slate to work with, but after buying their Edwardian property from developers, the clients had exactly this. Their desire was for a contemporary and low maintenance garden, with a place to eat out and entertain and space for their young daughter to play.
The Solution: The design aims to create a bit of movement and interest in the rectangular space. Rendered raised beds create a conducive eating area in the sunny end of the garden and improve the view from the house. Hardwood deck and low maintenance artificial grass provide safe play surfaces and the horizontal slatted trellis allows more light into the garden whilst retaining privacy. Attractive, practical and flexible, this garden gets the thumbs up from all the family.
