This riverside terrace garden is been designed with relaxation and sophistication in mind. The focus is on simplicity, combining high-quality features with a hint of playfulness, to avoid detracting from the magnificent views of the Thames and Tower Bridge beyond. Yellow Balau smooth planed hardwood decking provides a contemporary finish to the flooring throughout, arranged to draw the eye out across the river and chosen to reflect the terrace’s waterside character.

To the left hand side of the terrace a slightly raised deck provides a platform for a lounge area, featuring a large mattress weatherproof mattress and cushions, from which to relax and enjoy the view of the bridge. A small waterproof storage area beneath this platform keeps the cushions dry and clean over the winter months. A stunning illuminated cube water feature, flanked on either side by eye-catching Cordylines contained in self-illuminated planters, were installed along the rear boundary wall directly opposite the patio doors, to create an impressive welcome to the space.

Further framing to the terrace is provided by an illuminated planter installed beside both of the pillars supporting the balcony of the flat above. Planting was selected for low maintenance, all year interest and wind tolerance. The right hand side of the terrace forms the main dining area.

Featuring funky illuminated curved seating and three bespoke mobile decking stools around a central glass topped illuminated table, the area offers ample opportunity for alfresco entertaining both day and night. Groups of column lights of varying heights are set adjacent to the dining area and on the raised platform. The lighting focal point is the fun sculptural 6-pointed stars.

  • 2. What is Earth Designs?
    Earth Designs was formed in 2003. Our aim is to provide our clients with a garden space that reflects their lifestyle and personality, making our work stylish and innovative without being intimidating. From our no-nonsense, ‘down to earth’ consultations to our after-care packages, we offer a total, ‘concept to creation’ service to our clients.
    We have compiled this garden design package based on the concept drawing discussed in your initial design consultation. This presentation, along with your visualisation and design, should hold all the information you need to give you a clear mental picture of how the garden will look. If you have any questions about the design or its implementation, please don’t hesitate to ask.
    For your piece of mind Earth Designs is a fully insured registered company. Should you wish to see our insurance certificates please let us know. For mutual protection, all work is completed under signed contracts.
  • 3. Who are Earth Designs?
    Katrina is the Managing and Creative Director here at Earth Designs. It will be her you will have met at your initial consultation and she runs the design side of the company.
    As Operations Director, her husband Matt oversees the build side of the company. Should you commission an Earth Designs garden Matt will be your first point of contact for all build related questions.
    Wherever possible, all work is completed by our in-house team, including hard landscaping, structural design, and water features. Other services, such as tree surgery and electrical installation, are out-sourced to specially selected professionals

  • 5. What’s been said about us?
    The end result is that an overgrown wilderness has been transformed into an attractive and relaxing extension to our living space and we are delighted with the result. We only wish we'd done it sooner.
    Val and Les, Ilford, Essex
    I would commend them to any potential client as a friendly, efficient, and highly competent company, and thank them for all their hard work on my own garden

    We are very pleased with the work done by Earth Designs from the initial consultation and design phase through to implementation
