Contemporary Town House Garden

Client: Private
Year Completed: 2021
Size: 170 sqm
Location: Esher

This garden has a beautiful ancient sweet chestnut tree, but the shade from this tree had become a problem for the clients, because there was no-where sunny to sit. By designing the garden so that the tree became an important feature surrounded by into own woodland inspired garden area, a previously unused space has become an enjoyable part of their garden.

Issues of screening and privacy were resolved too and a new stylish terrace with comfortable bespoke seating has meant the family can now relax and enjoy the sunny part of their garden. The gentle sound of the water feature, subtle garden lighting as well as soft planting (designed for all the seasons), completes this garden transformation.

Before & After


Choosing Selina to design my garden was one of my best ever decisions. I am completely thrilled and cannot recommend her and Sacha highly enough. Selina understood my wants and needs before they had even properly formed in my mind. Her professionalism, creativity and attention to detail are truly impressive. Her constant but gentle oversight of the excellent gardening team was very reassuring. The whole process has been a pleasure and utterly painless – no doubt due to Selina’s professionalism. Instead of a “back yard” I now sit in a contemporary woodland oasis. Thank you Selina –  we are so grateful.
