fulham riverside phase 1
25 September 2014
The stunning gardens within a garden at Barratt London's Fulham Riverside are nearing completion. The secluded podium landscape is set at a height, partially enclosed by surrounding townhouses. A crisp, contemporary, formal composition has been adopted with a central lawn orientated to open out views over the Thames. A series of interlinked garden rooms to each side frame the lawn and provide spaces for residents to enjoy.
A pared back palette of material has been used within the garden. The main pathways, intersections and stepping stones are formed from Yorkstone, with small unit clay brick pavers for secondary paths and to the base of the rill. These elements form an ideal foil to the structured planting which includes table-top pruned Platanus x hispanica, massive Taxus baccata and Acer campestre balls, and a Betula grove. Magnolia hedges and hand-picked multi-stem Rhododendrons add spring-time interest to the layout.
