Gardens in Highgate London

PGSD was asked to work on two gardens in Highgate, north London, by construction company Heydon & Carr who were converting one house into two separate dwellings.

We designed and planted both of the gardens and installed top soil, turf, trees, shrubs and perennials.

The plants, of which there were several hundred, included: Clematis Montana on 1.5 Trellis; Jasminum on 1.5 Trellis; Parthenocissus on 1.5 Trellis; and Hedra on 1.5 Trellis.

Architectural Shrubs and trees comprised Phormium 5L; Cordyline 5L; Yukka 5L; specimen Japanese Maple; Bamboo 20L pots; Olive tree 1.5m tall; and Betula multi stem 2.5-3m tall.

The borders contain a mix of shrubs, perennials and grasses in 3 to 5 litre pots: Agapanthus; Aster; Geranium; Heleborous; Heuchera; Kniphofia; Rudbeckia; Grasses 5L; Carex Evergold; Stipa Tenuissima; and Semperviren.
