Blackheath Small Garden 3.png


This small garden is on an irregular-shaped plot in the heart of Blackheath Village, South London.  The owners would like to make better use of the space by creating a small terrace leading directly out from the small orangery at the rear of the property, in a style that stays true to the heritage of the early Victorian architecture.  Construction begins this Spring.

Plot size: 40 sq m
