Garden Design and Build Hampstead
Restoring residential grounds to their former glory
Acacia Gardens is proud to present an outstanding garden design and build project in Hampstead, London NW3. A complete front and back garden refurbishment was undertaken, including restoring the existing grounds to their former glory. As the property was a listed building in a conservation area, we took great care to ensure planning permission and conservation guidelines were adhered to. The extensive project included a gravel driveway, Yorkstone crazy paving, a patio, lawn restoration, railing restoration, planting design, borders, raised beds and trellis installation.

The front garden restoration included laying Yorkstone crazy paving at the entrance of the house. The gravel driveway gives the entrance a smart appearance to help achieve that all-important kerb appeal.
We installed a contemporary patio using Bath Yorkstone. The patio area sits next to the modern kitchen extension. It’s the perfect spot to unwind and relax with a glass of wine in the evening.
Due to building work carried out at the property, the lawn was in need of restoration. Where the building work had taken place, soil decompaction was required before laying new turf.
Black wrought iron railings surrounded part of the property. Our brief included refurbishing the railings. We consulted the manufacturer before undertaking the task. Refurbishing the railings made all the difference to this project. Keeping traditional designs elements are important for a historical property.
As per the client’s brief traditional style planting was part of the overall garden design. We consulted the client’s gardener who had knowledge of the garden and the history of previous planting schemes. Acacia Gardens improved existing flower beds and planted new borders.
Raised flower beds were restored and built. These included flower beds and vegetable beds. The materials included bricks with railway sleepers. The overall appearance is in keeping with the property and heritage garden. Raised vegetable beds are a great idea for anyone who loves fresh garden to table food.
This was an extensive garden restoration project in Hampstead. The client had just completed building work at the property so the adjacent ground required attention. We worked in partnership with the client’s architect and building contractor to ensure a cohesive approach on this job. Part of the project included raised beds and planting of borders so we consulted with the client’s gardener who had a historical knowledge of the garden. Acacia Gardens believe that a successful garden design and build project is where all partners collaborate to deliver the best possible garden for the client.
