A chic outdoor space: Holland Park, London

This formal garden in Holland Park was commissioned by a couple who wanted a chic outdoor space for entertaining friends and colleagues. The espaliered hornbeam hedge and theiroko fence mounted on top of the existing boundary wall guard their privacyoutdoors, while mixed borders of perennials punctuated by blocks ofyew hedges ensure interest throughout the year. A water feature and an exotic sculpture serve asfocal points whenthe garden is seen from the house.
