Inspiring Gardeners Since 1851

St. Johns Wood townhouse garden

This cool urban family garden was designed and built as part of a major renovation of an imposing Victorian townhouse in St Johns Wood.

The garden space was small, neglected and overlooked, with a mixture of treatments to the boundary; old walls in poor condition and an ugly brown painted fence. Contemporary slatted timber panels were used to make a unified, cohesive boundary.

Large hornbeam columns with structural under planting and a 100 year old feature olive tree form the key statement plants in the garden, contrasting with the crisp contemporary grey York stone paving and wall coping. Complex levels were mastered with the use of raised, rendered block beds. The result is an outdoor space that offers year round use for dining and relaxing, and at night, when lit, creates a very special ambience.
