Jenny Bloom Garden Design
Large Sunny Garden, E8
The Brief: The clients wanted to grow fruit trees, vegetables and vines in their large, south-facing garden – and needed a permanent structure to train the vines over the kitchen patio. Garden office and storage buildings were also planned for the bottom of the garden.
The Solution: A large oak pergola was designed and constructed over the kitchen patio to supports the vines and wisteria. A new curved path leads from the house to the raised vegetable beds and proposed garden buildings at the bottom of the garden. A large curvy lawn is surrounded by a sunny planting scheme using a variety of shrubs, perennials, grasses and herbs - many of which are drought tolerant once established.
