Greenwich Garden

Gardens of a former Grade II Georgian Rectory in Greenwich, SE10

 

Backing onto the Royal Park, Greenwich, the enclosed rear garden design combines pathways of reclaimed Yorkstone setts, Yorkstone paving flags with a small area of lawn and rich perennial planting beds. The garden also features a snug, built from the ruins of an old garden shed, and designed to be both garden storage and garden shelter. Internally clad with reclaimed scaffolding planks and with a cedar shingle roof, it is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

 

The smoke bush Cotinus Grace and Libertia formosa, both feature heavily in the planting scheme of this garden. A specimen multi-stem Amelanchier lamarckii offers a focal point, while a climbing hydrangea clambers up the outside of the house. A hairpin leg table and matching benches were also designed for the garden to offer an informal relaxed opportunity for dining outside.
