Project name

Wimbledon, London

For this private garden CFA created a green theatre that emphasized different scenes along its length. Hedges separate the different spaces giving the eye the opportunity to look at individual places, without breaking the continuity of the garden. It is a calm space, with its axis focused on a pinnacle water sculpture.

The contrast in the shape of the planting, the different materials used, created interest in the garden without compromising its simplicity. Plants such as clipped Taxus and Buxus were chosen for their foliage colour and architectural shape.

A Japanese theme manifests itself in the use of different grades of cobbles and larger boulders, that emerge from beneath the foliage of Acer palmatum and an unusual bonzai shaped Pinus species.
