This was previously a neglected back garden in Islington with shrubs so overgrown you couldn’t even see the slowly deteriorating mini conservatory-cum-greenhouse at the rear of the space. Also, hidden beneath overgrowth was a rusting iron two-seater bench.
The greenhouse was repainted and reroofed to become a focal point with the rest of the garden repaved in Yorkstone with London stock bricks to link it visually to the building. Rather than steps, the slope in the garden is traversed with wide interlinking terraces to help the areas flow more easily making it an ideal entertaining space.
The shady, but protected garden was perfect for tree ferns which added height and drama, whilst white flowering shrubs and perennials blended with the now revamped seating.
