For this client, who came to Chicago from England, it was really important to them that for their outdoor space, they created a feeling of privacy and enclosure, without feeling too enclosed. We took the opportunity to design and build their very own english garden but on a garage roof deck. To accomplish this, we created a lush garden along the boarder using english lavender, boxwood shrubs, and a handful of dwarf crabapple trees in the corners of the space. All of these were planted in gray fiberglass planter boxes. With an open steel and ipe slat wall attached to the parapet wall, the client was able to get the privacy that they were looking for without feeling like they were in a cage. With plenty of beautiful Restoration Hardware outdoor furniture, and a massive fire-pit, the space really came together to create the perfect english garden in the city.
