HIGHGATE WATER GARDEN

Just a stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath, this large Highgate home had just been renovated to a very high standard and was in desperate need of an amazing garden to complement it. The garden wraps around the house and unusually the front garden was just as private as the rear.

We cleared the existing garden and re-worked the levels to enable a very contemporary reflective pool to span the front garden, creating a grand entrance from the street. Paved with large porcelain tiles, the front garden looks crisp and modern, whilst the rear garden was decked with rustic looking artificial decking.

THE GARDEN BEFORE

Following renovation of the interior of the house, the garden had been left in a mess after being used by the builders as a dumping ground, with lots of channels having been dug out for new services

DURING THE BUILD

As the front section of the garden was to be tiled, it was vital that a level concrete pad was laid provide a smooth and solid level surface to lay on.
