Add some curvesThe before and after shots of this city garden say it all. Here, you see an interesting plot with soft edges, punctuated with planting that leads you through the space. Designers Fenton Roberts make it look so easy. Now just check out the before shot…

Garden at a GlanceWho lives here A couple with three childrenLocation Palmers Green, north LondonGarden size 24m long (not including the side return) and 6.6m wide; part of a semi-detached, late Victorian house Designer Jo Fenton of Fenton Roberts Garden DesignThe lawn area is a design of two ovals, set slightly on the diagonal. “Clients often ask for waviness in their garden design,” says Jo Fenton. “They often want wavy flowerbeds, but that can make your lawn look odd. So we designed the lawn based on ovals, then just made the beds around that as wide as we could.”

Unstructured flower beds. No straight lines!

this is an entirely different context but I like the idea of a defined shape of lawn, a oval or kidney bean or similar with plantings around it. The "courtyard" entry space is a big missed opportunity as it isn't truly a space....it is part of many other spaces The courtyard will really set up the entry to the home and view of the lake so is important.
