The simple styling of contemporary gardens is something you will see in many cities these days and at big garden events like the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. As homeowners increasingly create big open living spaces with floor to ceiling doors opening out to the garden this style of contemporary garden design has become popular. We have created many garden designs in Wimbledon SW19 that work with the contemporary styling of new home refurbishments.
In this garden in Wimbledon the garden has been created to give a large open lawn with a view down to the key entertaining space where the evening sun finishes. A focal vertical sculpture with a dining space behind sitting beneath table pruned blossom trees creates an enclosed space not overlooked by neighbours. Yet in front of the sculpture a simple lounge space is the ideal place to start the evening with a drink in the evening sun and finish as dusk falls with integral lighting and heating.
Large yew hedges buttress the planted borders to either side of the garden, and in between both planting and seating gives interest and views of the garden from different perspectives.
