Queens park.

A large Victorian house in Queens park West London.

A large extension with an opening glass wall on the rear of the house.

The client brief was to maintain a large area of lawn for the children but to also have maximum garden beds planted in the "cottage style" for colour and perfume.

The garden itself was rather overlooked so a "woodland" garden was incorporated into the design at the bottom of the garden.

A large stone bath tub and antique carved stone tablets also had to be used in the design.
