Peaceful oasis in the city

Location:
Melody Road, Wandsworth SW18
Site:
Two separate gardens to be combined as one.
Brief:

To combine two good sized London terraced house gardens into one, to create a peaceful oasis in the city for a young family to enjoy, relax and entertain in.

Challenges:

Two gardens on slightly different levels.
Combination of both contemporary and more traditional styling.
Tricky neighbours!

Design Response:

This was an extremely exciting prospect and had the juices flowing when we first visited!

A complete renovation of the house was underway, with the ground floor of one house being knocked through to next door with both gardens being brought together by removing the central fence.

We were then tasked to create a stylish, plantily family garden, with large central lawn and all the elements on the client’s wish list.

These included:
An extensive outdoor kitchen with Green Egg, Gozney oven, Argentinian plancha and outdoor fridge.
Poured concrete bar and worktops.
Bert & May tiling detail on the floor and walls.
Dining area complete with bespoke pergola over which Wisteria and Jasmine will climb.
Outdoor potting greenhouse.

We also created a secluded spot behind three beautiful multi-stem Birch trees in the back corner for reading and relaxation.

We included an outdoor lounging area with central firepit and bespoke storage to house the AV and garden electrics as well as the Gin station!

The garden included some wonderful hard and soft landscaping and many features that we are proud to have sourced and built.

As well as the greenhouse, pergola and kitchen, there were feature slatted fences, a bespoke gas fire pit, robot lawn mower, extensive Ipad controlled lights with exterior pendant lights on the pergola, beautiful teak garden furniture and automatic irrigation system.

What an enjoyable project to be a part of, the sense of peace and calm is palpable – only broken when the outdoor sound system is turned on as the sun sets and the outdoor party begins!
