Highgate Garden design.

this garden design was for an 18th century house in highgate, london n6, that underwent extensive renovations.it included a glass living room extending into the garden.This Highgate garden is positioned on a hill and an odd 'T' shape. several levels had to be incorporated into the garden design to make it usable. Due to being in a Highgate conservation area and a tpo a mature lime tree had to be included in the garden design.
