The Garden

This residential garden occupies a narrow strip of land opposite the imposing Ridgmount Mansions, a Victorian-era apartment building. Stretching from Chenies Street to Torrington Place, the path of this long, narrow garden leads alongside a series of miniature lawns, interspersed by shrubby borders. The garden has benefited over the years from a planting programme which includes mixed herbaceous borders and a woodland glade area. A new sunny border by Chenies Street is now established and flowering well. At either end of the garden sit ornamental birdbaths, frequented by the local avian population.
