Hyde ValeAsian Garden, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Slow your journeyThis small garden has been broken up into subtle zones to make the area look slightly bigger. The designer’s aim was to create a journey through the space, which is helped by the incorporation of a pond. The stepping stones encourage you to walk slowly across the water, while the variation of materials in each zone creates different atmospheres as you move through the garden.Discover how a small London backyard became a beautiful oasis.
Lead the wayIn this contemporary garden, a stunning water feature, complete with waterlilies and goldfish, has been installed in a relatively small area. To achieve this, the designer used the entire width of the plot, rather than the length. The stepping stones work well in the compact space, as they encourage people to slow down and turn a quick walk into a leisurely stroll from the patio to the garden beyond.
