Islington.

The owners of this garden had originally designed the garden when they first moved in 10 years previously but had outgrown its use and had several children that had moved on in age and required something a bit more special.

I designed a modern style playhouse built around a rather shabby looking silver birch. The old sand pits were turned into a large wildlife pond with a bridge.

The tired flower beds were redefined and replanted.

Many elements had to stay and be incorporated into the new garden.
