Modern garden - Blackheath

Design Brief

Working with architects is very much part of our portfolio and this perfectly proportioned garden in Blackheath needed our expert plant knowledge. Designed by Ana Sutherland of Francisco Sutherland Architects, we were called upon to plant up the intimate planting spaces to provide colour, wildlife value and scent wherever possible. Evergreen jasmine clothes the contemporary pergola at the end whilst clipped, evergreen hedging defines each change in level from the house door to the offices at the end. Small really can be beautiful when you select the right materials to go with the right plants.

    Just a few of the plants used…

    Acer palmatum ‘Dissectum’, Allium schoenoprasum, Buxus sempervirens, Helleborus niger, Hydrangea seemannii, Libertia grandiflora, Mahonia ‘Soft Caress’, Nandina domestica, Olea europaea (std), Pittosporum ‘Irene Paterson’, Salvia ‘Caradonna’, Verbena bonariensis ‘Lollipop’
