Front Garden in Barnes
The owners of this property in Barnes decided to bring up their front garden as their back garden was being totally re-configured.
The driveway and frontage of this corner house in Barnes had to be kept uncluttered to allow maximum parking space. Minimalism, practicality as well as simplicity were required by the owner.
A single design flow had to link the front garden with the newly built contemporary back garden.
Bespoke garden joinery : bin shed and fencing
Boundary with the neighbour’s front garden is screened with a bespoke slatted fence and gate that seamlessly blend with the design at the back.The mixed hedging plants has been replaced with a newly planted hedge of evergreen Osmanthus x burkwoodii. The strong fragrance of its white flowers in Spring delights the pedestrians.
Wheelie bins and recycling boxes are neatly stored in a bespoke shed made of Accoya.
All the joinery work was accurately built and installed by the team of Ark Joinery Project.
Steps and paving
Steps in front of one of the two entrances have been redesigned to create cleaner lines. Portland cast stone match the colour of the house window ledges.
On the other corner of the house, Victorian tiles in front of the main entrance have been kept. New porcelain tiles connect the front and the back garden by creating visual harmony.
Pots and window boxes
Large Zinc pots planted with evergreen shrubs frame the two entrance doors.
Made to measure window boxes spray painted in the same colour as the doors soften the frontage of this house with seasonal bedding plants.
