The Rust Garden

This small town garden for a busy family needed to be practical, low maintenance and contemporary. In this design, the terrace is accessed by the folding glass doors from the kitchen offering a direct view of the stainless steel water feature. Rusted corten steel panels complement the grey-blue, mauve and rust-coloured planting. This creates an area perfect for relaxing and entertaining, and hides a play area, shed and rotary dryer.

'I just want to thank you for the fantastic job you did in designing our garden. A grown up area for adults to relax in, a separate place for the children, somewhere to conceal the trampoline, washing and shed, and all in a small London garden. It's my favourite place in the whole world'. W Green.
