Kensal Green

Urban retreat
One of our most atmospheric and evocative gardens

Created within a series of courtyards housed by the walls of a converted factory. The result is a heady mix of deeply shaded oases of verdant greenery, with sonorous rustling from the might bamboo plantations and tree ferns, balanced out with the soft trickling of water from the copper water feature.

An exotic and lush planting combination sees black-stemmed bamboos with other-worldly tree ferns, with large canopies of Fig trees and Bay enshrouding the garden with soft, green light.

Lighting is another factor that helps make this courtyard space so inviting and enticing, with a whole new element opened up to all the corners and pockets of the courtyard by night, when the subtle lighting helps illuminate new angles and dimensions to the garden
