Moore Street, Chelsea

A terraced garden at the rear of a Chelsea townhouse that was looking tired and in need of rejuvenation to the planting and the hard-landscaping.

The walls, which were suffering from damp, were waterproofed, capped with sawn yorkstone, re-rendered and painted to brighten the whole area. Tired yorkstone paving was cleaned, treated and re-pointed and large planters with a sandstone finish were positioned around the space in locations visible from within the house to improve the garden’s aesthetic from inside.

A new planting scheme was introduced throughout the garden using bay standards and blocks of buxus hedging to give structure to the formal space and a backdrop to flowering plants including azaleas, geraniums and salvia.

A combination of akebia and evergreen jasmine climbers supported by bright blue trellis panels frame the planted area and give privacy to a garden overlooked by many houses.

At the front of the property, bold, fibreglass planters with a stone finish hold buxus balls to give the house a unique and structured look.
