This is our own studio garden. We were very demanding clients, needing to turn our tiny outside space into a place where we could relax when we occasionally take our noses away from the grindstone. We don’t usually eat sushi and drink wine at lunchtime but thought once the garden was done that maybe we should.
The garden is recycling at its best and is made from three separate Chelsea gardens including the lighting, furniture, plants and limestone. I’m particularly pleased with the way the modernity of these elements sits so comfortably against the 140-year-old Sussex flint wall.
