Balham Contemporary Family Garden

The garden now offers itself as another ‘outside room’. It provides a great entertaining area leading from the large kitchen doors with inbuilt seating. Raj Green Sandstone paving leads to the shed and trampoline but leaves very generous planting beds either side. The planting is a mix of evergreen shrubs and climbers and perennials and bulbs for all year round interest.

There are also posts which support a sail shade keeping the sun out on super hot days. The shade is also water proof so the garden can be used for entertaining even on a damp summer evening. The fencing and pergola were painted black to give a contemporary feel. The trampoline is also black and recedes into the background. A contemporary pergola has also been built in to the garden. This doubles up as monkey bars, which is a bit plus both for the children and grown ups!!
