Hove, East Sussex – 30’s Semi detached

This beautiful house painted in greys and lilacs had a boring rectangular garden, with no planting and an imposing Eucalyptus at the end. We designed a pergola’d entrance at 45 degrees onto the first section of lawn, zig zagged across the garden to a deck with firewall. Lots of colourful planting interrupted by blocks of clipped yew. We reduced the Eucalyptus, giving it a better shape and letting in more light.
