Family Garden - Bromley

Design Brief

A family home in Bromley had been neglected for years until the present owners moved in and modernised the property from the ground floor right up to the roof.

With the extensive internal renovations underway the next phase was the complete transformation of both the front and rear gardens. As a family home the rear garden needed to be visually stunning from the main terrace whilst being practical and a joy to look after. The front garden priority was security and ease of parking, with an elegant, welcoming aspect when viewed from the street.
