Muswell Hill front garden

Posted on

Our first job of 2012 was to transform a Muswell Hill front garden, which had mainly consisted of concrete paving. The concrete was cleared and the old boundary wall demolished. A new wall was built, and a Victorian tile path was laid, in an ornate Braemar pattern, as described in the Original Style catalogue. Scottish pebbles were laid over the main area of the garden, planted with a feature Chamaerops palm, box balls and a low hebe hedge. A tiled area for the bins was also included in the corner of the garden.

Bull-nosed steps, made from sawn sandstone, were laid at the entrance to the garden and at the step up to the front door.

The finishing touch was a sturdy garden gate from Cannock Gates, painted in a grey-blue to match the colour of the border tiles.
