Residence gardening has grow to be 1 of the top leisure activities in the country. This townhouse garden off Portobello Road delivers a sanctuary from the bustling streets of Notting Hill. With the dining area situated on the roof terrace, the garden has been just, symmetrically designed for pure visual pleasure. If you’re unable to take your alfresco dining elsewhere, opt for fold-up or portable tables and chairs, which can be very easily removed when you want your garden to function solely as a gorgeous green space.
Symmetry will often be visually attractive, and the lines of this Notting Hill garden beautifully mirror the curved components of the property. An undulating glass conversatory which leads on to a garden for entertaining, and a target-shaped mixture of paving slabs and bricks focuses the eye to the central dining space. A similarly symmetrical scheme would perform nicely in a much smaller sized space: just like in the home, sustaining order avoids the sense of an overly cluttered space and creates a feeling of calm.
To produce contrast and visual vibrancy, situate curvaceous containers on stairs and fill with interestingly shaped plants, from scallop-leafed geraniums to spiky, serrated agave. Or, try combining vertical foliage with a single that will spill more than the sides to double up on varieties.
Jinny Blom’s compact city garden is a neatly walled space, replanted only months ahead of this photograph was taken. Clipped box cubes contrasts with a clever planting scheme that mixes substantial-leaved exotic plants with cottage-garden favourites. A wide pond is traversed by a clever walkway.
This roof garden in west London was developed by Adolfo Harrison Gardens in collaboration with interior designers Maddux Creative The design and style was primarily based on the four classical components of water, fire, air and earth which can be observed in the water-blade feature, bio-fuel fireplace, western red cedar and basalt stone cladding.
