FAMILY GARDEN TWICKENHAM
Being close to the river, this house has a floor level much higher than the garden, leading to a design which softens the transition of levels by creating a small seating area midway between ground level of house & garden. Bullnosed stone steps give lots of extra seating space, as well as encouraging direct access to the large lawn beyond.
Planting closer to the house further softens the steps, which could otherwise be quite a harsh feature. We also designed, constructed and planted the front garden and the side of the house including new boundary walls, fences and bespoke railings and gates. This work can be seen in the ‘Drives & Front Gardens’ section
