The Garden Trellis Co creates security and privacy in an urban environment

For a recent project in Notting Hill, London, The Garden Trellis Company used contemporary slatted panels to add ultimate privacy and create a more desirable living area for an urban city garden.

Different height panels

The client is a young professional who bought the ground floor flat which had a small rear garden with low perimeter walls and was severely overlooked.

The idea for the design was to create an attractive but very functional boundary. It was vital that The Garden Trellis Co created a decent amount of screening with a prominent level of security, all without the panels becoming too dominating.

With an initial outline quotation for the project agreed, representatives met the client and their designer on site to discuss the new project and carry out a site survey. From the survey the design team provided CAD drawings to showcase the scheme for the client, along with a final quotation. With everything agreed The Garden Trellis Co’s craftsmen prepared the panels to order in their workshop ready for the fitting teams to install. The project was completed within the given timescale.

The three walls that were having panels fixed to them were different heights and the fence also had to be cut on-site to fit around wall columns and existing storage units. Another challenge was that the only access to the garden was through the flat; therefore the installation team had to arrange to use a neighbour’s garden to get some materials on-site. These issues made the process slightly longer but the installation was still completed within the two days.

The products featured were Western Red Cedar contemporary slatted panels with a 45mm slat and a 10mm gap fixed to the front face of a brick wall.

Fence cut on site

The Garden Trellis Co team is very pleased with the outcome of this project, they think it provides an appropriate level of security, adds character, interest and colour to the garden.
