Multi-Layered Kensington Garden
This elegant Kensington property has an east-facing rear garden which is split over three levels. The garden is accessed via the lower-level sitting room and as the layout is fairly tight, Cameron has maximised space by installing an in-built bench with a raised bed behind it with low-level planting. Shallow stone steps lead up to the middle section of the garden which is used for al fresco dining and more steps give on to decking at the end of the garden for relaxing under the plane tree.
Planting the garden
The abundant planting scheme throughout is naturalistic and lush with evergreens of contrasting forms and foliage colour balanced with bold structural planting. Smart, classical stone paving adds sophistication. The boundary walls and slatted trellising are planted up with mature climbers and feature trees which lend both atmosphere and privacy to the space. Beautiful, soft lighting makes this enchanting by night, from both inside and out. Stylish soft furnishings and furniture ensure an ‘outdoor’ room that is luxurious and inviting.
