A functional and flowing family garden Back Garden Designs in London by Kate Eyre Garden Design

Turney Road 3

A functional and flowing family garden
We aimed to create an subtle flow within this garden to allow the different areas to integrate seamlessly. A line of patio lights in the dining area laid with brown porcelain links with the curve of the planted areas. This curve continues through to the central space intended for leisure and entertainment, consisting of a circular deck with a cantilevered bench and fire pit, adjoined by a Caledonian pebble area that makes the garden feel wider.

The planting scheme is arranged around beautiful mature olive trees on each side, with a radiant palette of orange, red and pink was carefully chosen to blend with the colours of the interior of the house.

At the back, we installed a bespoke shed with a gym and bike park, and a log store opposite, with a rendered raised bed for herbs.

Druce Road

A stylish medium-sized back garden
We designed the exquisite colour scheme of purple, white, silver, blue and black for this garden to create subtle contrasts between the hard and the soft landscaping.

As you enter the garden, you walk along a path sheltered by white jasmine underplanted with a combination of evergreen ferns and Liriope muscari against black fencing. Then you encounter the fine buff sandstone patio with its intersecting curves, which contrasts with the adjacent purple rendered wall. Walking through the garden, three mature dwarf olive trees create a distinguished atmosphere, while the Agapanthus africanus and Lavandula hidcote planted at their feet add to the lush Mediterranean feel.

At the rear of the garden, the curved bed leads you to a circular decked area with a cantilevered bench attached to a striking purple rendered raised bed. To the side, a separate white Caledonian pebble path planted with ferns and grasses leads to a smart grey shed.

Huf House Garden

A multifaceted garden for a multidimensional house
The intricately laid decking runs away from the house to majestic dining and lounge areas, which both enjoy stunning hand-carved vessels with overflowing water. In the central area a striking flaming bowl provides illumination. Stepping up to the mezzanine level you walk through an exquisitely planted garden to find yourself in a tranquil corner area, where you can lounge and enjoy another perspective of this enthralling space.

Calton Avenue 3 (back)

A large back garden with shape and movement
The patio seamlessly extends the living space of the sun-room extension at the back of the house, and its circular perimeter is embraced by lushly planted angular raised beds and two curved wooden benches mirroring each other. The angle of the patio’s plank paving is carried through to the sandstone plank path bordering the lawn, and entices you along the colourful border to the destination, the subtly screened play area at the back of the garden. Meanwhile on the other side fine upright pleached trees provide a screen.

Ryecroft Road

An outside entertainment area come rain or shine
This garden was conceived as a highly functioning entertainment area for rain or shine. The concept included two seating areas on different levels and an external kitchen area. We designed and built this modern and outstanding patio. The bespoke pergola and cedar curved bench are statement pieces that along with the lush Mediterranean planting have created a unique ambience.
