In the summer of 2013 I visited a potential client in Clapham London to look at how they could reclaim their outdoor space. Read on for insight into the garden design and installation of this small, contemporary, urban garden.
Effective design of small spaces is a subject gaining increasing media coverage of late. Micro living looks at achieving affordable and often more sustainable housing whilst numerous tv shows look at de-cluttering our lives and making the most of what space we have. Design of space is just as important in our gardens in order to achieve effective functionality while retaining aesthetic appeal. In this London garden the space was limited and it was vital to make the maintenance manageable for the busy owners.
