This garden in Ravenscourt Park was neglected and unloved when its owners moved in, consisting of a shabby lawn and
a couple of scruffy shrubs but two promising trees - a Magnolia and an apple tree.

Seeing the potential for the structure these could bring in years to come, Butter supplemented them with chunky Taxus topiary, planted at intervals along the length of the lawn.
These were interspersed with lush, dense planting in greens, purple and white, with texture from Euphorbia and Alchemilla, and splashes of colour from Lupinus,
Tulips and perennials chosen to bring life and interest throughout the year.
