This urban garden of a family home in London has a lovely outdoor dining areaon the natural stone terrace.

Beyond the terrace is a lawn for play and at the bottom of the garden a further terrace for entertaining.

The garden is on two different levels. The area between the terrace and the lawn is planted loosely with perennials. ‘Floating’ stone steps rise up among the planting. Clever use of planting and hard landscaping creates lots of texture and movement.
