Detail of Geranium nodosum in this roof terrace garden of a house in South Eaton Place, Belgravia. The project also included the design of the first floor balcony spaces, along with lightwell planting, window boxes and interior planting. The garden design was a collaboration with London based architecture and design practice Studio Ilse, who were responsible for designing the interiors of the house.
Clay pots in different shapes and sizes sourced from Belgium company Atelier Vierkant were used throughout the different spaces in combination with vintage containers and brass lacquered copper planters sourced from Bronzino. Illustrated is one of the four multi-stem Amelanchier canadensis Forest Pansy trees that were planted in the largest of the Belgium pots.
Perennials and ornamentals grasses such as Sedum spectabile Autumn Joy and Anemanthele lessoniana spill out of containers throughout the roof terrace, giving the appearance of a true garden, rather than just an outside space with plants in pots.
Amelanchier canadensis Forest Pansy, Thymus vulgaris and Geranium nodosum, are some of the trees and perennial plants that feature in the planting design of this roof top garden on South Eaton Square.
