More than 40 cubic meters of soil were removed to make this formal garden and link it to the lower level of a large Victorian house.

Pale Limestone paving flows from the interior floor to the exterior terrace and steps to link house and garden.

Clipped Yew (Taxus baccata), Box (Buxus sempervirens), Holly (Ilex mutchagara “Nellie R. Stevens”) and Star jasmine (Trache-lospermum jasminoides) are use architecturally to create a crisp, sculptural framework. Spring flowering bulbs, summer flowering perennials and roses add seasonal colour and scent.

A simple but elegant front garden was also created for the property.
