Designing a small garden is just as challenging as designing a bigger space.
At Floral & Hardy we are proud of the quality of our small garden designs. We take great care in evey step from the initial planning through to the sourcing of materials, project managing the construction, planning the planting and of course, taking care of all the finishing touches.

This is the rectangular rear garden to a mid-terrace Victorian property in Streatham.
Our client envisaged a space completely transformed from its blank canvas, typical of a new build house, to a beautiful garden

This is the back garden to a substantial Edwardian terraced house in Streatham with many attractive period features.
These are the front and rear gardens to a double-fronted, period property in Sydenham. Its owners had spent a lot of time renovating the property and wanted to bring the gardens up to the same standard.
This garden was the small, shady, north-facing garden to a relatively new build house on a private estate.
This garden was on two levels with a small well area outside the basement kitchen.
This garden is on a steeply sloping, triangular plot with complicated level changes.
This was new build property in with the typical new build garden – boring turf concealing builders’ rubble and an unimaginative area of deck had been laid.
This was a new build property and the garden was typically very small, laid to lawn with a few paving slabs outside the back door.
The roof terrace has spectacular views over interesting surrounding buildings, including the Natural History Museum, but the inhospitable, exposed, sloping space made entertaining and relaxing difficult.
As with most gardens this size, and with a young family, space was at a premium and our clients wanted somewhere they could relax and entertain, and where their children could play.
The existing plot sloped up away from the house and was rather tired in appearance. The deck at the rear was a particular eyesore.
Our clients had fond memories of holidays in the south of France and wanted to re-create something of a rustic French feel in their tiny London garden, using materials to suit the age of their property.
This was a very interesting project in that the garden was on an island in the middle of the Thames only accessible by footbridge.
This was a suburban garden on a steeply sloping site, rising up at the back of the house via some very steep steps, rendering much of the garden unusable.
A steep staircase with high risers and narrow treads down from the drawing room made this a potentially treacherous space for the children, or adults alike, as well as taking up garden space.
This was the tiny garden to a terraced Victorian house belonging to a young family.Coming from Australia, our couple really missed the outside space for barbecuing and entertaining.
This garden is in fact a tiny enclosed courtyard, surrounded by tall buildings, in central London.
This garden had previously been designed with a series of ‘rooms’ to disguise the length and narrowness of the plot.
Our first concern with this garden was to give our clients the security and privacy they needed but as this was a listed building, we had first to approach the local council for permissions.
Our client wanted an interesting, easy to look after patio garden with a traditional feel, but did not want a symmetrical design typical of many such schemes. She wanted something a bit ‘different’.
Our clients wanted an elegant dining area making the best use of the space and in a style in keeping with the property and its interiors.
Our brief was for a practical space our clients could use to relax and entertain in, but the plot was divided awkwardly by a step making use of a table and chairs impossible.
This was a postage-stamp back garden typical of London Victorian properties, but the tiny courtyard had been laid wholly to deck with no planting to speak of.
Our client is a keen gardener who wanted a complete overhaul of her garden space. She wanted something pretty and private that she could relax in and develop over time.
This is a basement flat in a large Victorian terraced house and the garden space was divided into several smaller areas for the use of its various tenants.
This was a typical long, narrow suburban garden with an ugly concrete patio and a boring rectangular lawn with sparse planting.
The existing rectangular patio lead us to this design and we decided to square off the rather awkwardly shaped plot and divide it with a series of rectangles forming the lawn, play area, path and planting beds.
