Hampstead Courtyard Gardens

This detached Georgian house with three separate gardens in a conservation area had recently been renovated, but the owners felt that although the gardens had been given some attention they needed a re-vamp with special focus on the planting.

 The owners wanted the spaces to ‘pop’ and for the planting to feel abundant, this had to be achieved whilst being respectful of the house and to the existing design.

In the largest of the gardens we introduced many mature specimens notably several 3m Wisteria, a number of multi-stem Birch trees, mature Hydrangea supported by obelisks and plenty of ferns and climbers in the shadier spots as well as copious Crcosmia around the water feature. We also added a natural gas firepit for the seating area.

In the smaller courtyard gardens we added numerous planters, one space focussing on ferns and their companions due to the space’s shady nature and the other garden with a palette mainly in the blues and purples owing to its sunnier aspect.
