This project immediately posed a challenge due to location of the garden. A 4 story terrace in chelsea which had two frontages and an extension, on top of which had been decked and was accessible via the second floor. This decked area was where the client wanted plants installed to form a pleasant area they could relax in during the warm summer evenings.
The real challenge was access as everything had to be taken up a ladder along the side of the extension. The wooden planter we had to build came in pieces and had to be assembled on the rooftop, along with the compost to fill it and all the plants to install. We used a range of ferns, shrubs and plants along the planter and a row of hedging along the far side to screen from overlooking windows. A completely transformed space that can now be used for a range of purposes.
