This urban garden was bounded by a damp delapidated brick retaining wall which formed a barrier between the house and garden. The majority of the wall was removed and replaced by a timber-faced retaining wall and planter 'fingers' which pull the garden back towards the house and frame the relocated existing stone steps. The garden is generally shaded, but towards the house the planting takes advantage of its predominately south facing aspect, comprising perennial grasses including stipa and calamagrostis planted with lavandula, echinacea, echinops, eryngium, verbena and salvia. Shadier areas are planted with hakonechloa, liriope, alchemilla and phlomis.
