RESIDENTIAL GARDENS LONDON
LIGHTWELL GARDENS, KING’S CROSS, LONDON
SUBURBAN GARDEN, CROYDON, LONDON
When Naomi first approached this project, the terrace house garden had not seen much attention in many years. It appeared rundown and in need of restoring. The owner wanted to create an oasis by filling the space with plants and having multiple sections within the long, thin garden. Naomi created a beautiful urban garden space, with an area for eating near the house and another for entertaining at the sunny, eastern end of the garden. Drawing on her love of cottage style planting, she achieved the feel of a peaceful garden sanctuary. And to attract more interest, provided the addition of modern paving in the limited space.
Naomi is an excellent garden designer. With my garden she managed to take an awkward, unattractive, long, thin, west facing terrace garden and design something that I am proud to invite people into. I worked with her on everything from materials to planting ideas. She is very receptive to feedback but also brings her extensive knowledge and understanding of plants and design to the project. There were a few things that I was not sure about but am so glad now that I put myself in the hands of an expert and went with her design.
COURTYARD GARDEN, CHELSEA LONDON
This garden was designed specifically to incorporate more greenery into the client’s everyday life. Although the space was small, Naomi worked with green foliage and white flowers to create a bright, open feel. She also incorporated a water feature to promote relaxation and create a calming environment. And the grey marble wall helped to bring a little bit of the inside outdoors, replicating the colour and design of the kitchen.
Naomi was excellent in her approach and presentation. She worked with us to understand what we needed and how best to achieve it, even within a limited budget. She was happy to allow freedom and flexibility enabling us to develop ideas with helpful input and suggestions. Work is about to start.
