Formal Front.

Project Description

You’ve got space for the car – a boon when parking is so hard to find – but you don’t want the car to dominate. The brief for this garden in Teddington was to create a structured, formal space and to draw attention away from the car, keeping the Yorkstone path. The car clearly has its own space, just out of view at the front of the photo, but the garden takes centre stage. New stone, closely matched to the original, is softened by the gravel; neat ball-shaped bushes of box surrounded by woodchip add definition and colour; the lawn softens the whole effect – modern, sophisticated and stylish rather than dated, utilitarian and dull.
