An Entertainer’s Garden, Hyde Park
A compact, high impact new garden, tailored around the individual needs of a successful TV entertainer and his partner.
Undertaken as part of the ‘from shell’ interior design and refurbishment of the whole house by interior designer Dan Hopwood. Our bold, deceptively simple looking designs link to the interiors of the house and compliment them, forming their backdrop, comprising exquisitely detailed components, executed by our dedicated craftsmen and specialist build team. Central to the designs are subtly bold, interlocking, stone steps - their composition emphasizing the axial journey up to, through and from the new interiors of the house. Materials include meticulously laid out, large slab, flamed granite paving, raw wood panelling and perimeter screening combining to set-off a pair of earthenware pots handmade to our own bespoke designs. Terminating the lower paved garden, and forming a rich backdrop to it, is a raw wood wall designed by us to link with wood and marble elements in Dan’s designs inside the house. New stone steps lead up from here to decked terraces that we reconfigured to create improved lounging and dining areas at higher level. The structured hard-scape of the new garden is complimented by bold new panel planting - swathes of summer flowering agapanthus; a block of winter flowering, fragrant sarcococca nearest the house; under-plantings of pachysandra in fresh green shades on other edges with lighting to complete the whole effect.
