We installed this garden in Camberwell this time last year and it has established well in 12 months.
The bay trees at the back will grow to screen the fence and the neighbour's wall. The height difference between the road and the front of the house was close to 1.5m. To overcome this we built a series of retaining walls, strategically placed to spread the level change over the whole garden.
The pond adds a point of interest whilst helping to soften the hard surfaces. Bamstone bluestone was used on pond capping, retaining walls and steps to add uniformity throughout the hard landscaping.
