client brief

Compliment and soften an architect's new terrace design.

site description

A large terrace area with hard landscaping.


A very formal terrace overlooking Hyde Park with a beautiful tiled floor but no planting areas.  We created three multi-tiered planters in similar materials but with a more organic shape to counteract the formality and layered the planting including formal evergreens as boundary plants but including space for soft planting of grasses and perennials to offer texture, movement and colour.  These soft areas are adjusted seasonally within the space available.
