Client Brief

The clients wanted a contemporary suburban driveway that incorporated a space for two cars that wouldn’t dominate the design.  It was vital there would be a generous amount of planting to balance the design.


To stay true to the 30’s street architecture and echoing the red brick façade, Belgium clay paver containing a hint of charcoal was selected to complement the warmer tones of the red brick and to link with the contemporary storage unit and doors.

The creasing drip tile edging is repeated in a line running the length of the brick wall which encloses the front garden. The organic curves used in the paving design are duplicated with the curved top to the brick wall.

The organically shaped central island forms a pivot point that gently divides the brick walkways and parking slots.

A clipped Carpinus betulus creates a vertical focal point, underplanted with Hydrangea macrophylla, Pittosporum tenufolium, Pachysandra, Liriope and Geranium phaeum.

This driveway in Harrow is now a harmonious flow of interconnecting lines with a balance of texture and tone.
