1960s Front Garden in Wimbledon

Unusually, off-street parking was not required, but this retired couple wanted a front garden that suited the period and character of their house, and was virtually maintenance-free.

The final design was deceptively simple-looking: contemporary paving in pale grey, with darker grey detail in the edges and semi-circular entrance to the house. The planting was restricted which gave it a rather ‘chic’ feel, with lavenders and conifers, and seasonal additions of spring and summer bedding.
