Chelsea Flower ShowThe Outdoor Room has had another successful year at the Chelsea Flower Show, building three gardens including Ann-Marie Powell's garden for the RHS' Greening Grey Britain campaign. Juliet Sargeant's 'Modern Slavery Garden' won a Gold medal and People Choice award in the Fresh Garden category and Sam Ovens' Main Avenue garden for Cloudy Bay won a well-deserved Silver-Gilt.
Guy's & St Thomas' Hospital, LondonWe were excited to build a new courtyard garden for Guys & St Thomas' Charity, designed by Annie Chapman of Verde Design. High quality materials including bespoke cut yorkstone and hardwood benches combine with a simple planting palette to make a peaceful retreat from the pace and bustle of London Bridge.
Kirdford, West SussexAs part of the ongoing development of the estate, we were asked to restructure the gardens surrounding a listed country house using sympathetic materials and planting styles. The objective was to provide a more intimate setting to the immediate area for entertaining whilst still allowing and encouraging the views out to the wider landscape.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“It was great working with Joe, he had some great ideas and also took on board our views to create a garden that not only looked amazing on paper but now provides a fantastic outdoor extension to our house that can be enjoyed by the family all year round.”
“We loved the design, which took into account all of our unstructured hopes and wishes and gave us a beautiful area which has settled into the rest of the garden perfectly as the seasons have turned. Amanda and Chris did a fantastic job with the ground works, pond and planting too, thanks very much to your whole team!”
"Joe really listened to our needs and requests for our small SW London garden transformation and designed and created a stylish and practical space, beautifully planted with our favourite trees, shrubs and herbs. The result is now a fragrant, sunny garden where the children can be active, the dog loves and the grown ups can enjoy alfresco dining on the integral seating and patio area. I would not hesitate in recommending Joe Perkins of The Outdoor Room; he is a throughly nice chap and his skills and expertise are highly evident from the outset."
