Contemporary & Modern Gardens

At Floral & Hardy we have a wide range of experience in designing modern and contemporary gardens that work in harmony with their surroundings. 

We always take the context of a garden into consideration and work in conjuction with you to make sure that we achieve your perfect garden.

View some of our previous modern garden designs below: 

Muswell Hill Haven

These are the gardens to a Collins house in Muswell Hill

Crystal Palace Chill Out

The garden will be designed within a contemporary style with the aid of a geometric framework, yet through use of bold planting it will deliver a very natural aesthetic. 

Guildford Garden Design

Split Personality in Guildford

This split personality garden in Guildford combines a modern neat rear garden with a very formal traditional front garden area.

Cool Contemporary

This is the rectangular garden to a detached home in Ruislip

Hot Tub Heaven

This is the sloping garden to a new build property in a quiet, gated estate in Frimley, Surrey.

Out on the Stoop

This is the garden to a ground floor flat in Hackney


Small garden with contemporary patio and living wall

Upstairs, Downstairs

These are the gardens to a unique, end of terrace, mews-style property in the grounds of a former Grade II listed manor house, with spectacular views over fields and woodland.

Outside kitchen with BBQ in terraced garden

Garden Kitchen

This was a substantial new-build property in a private road in Chislehurst, Kent with views over a golf course. 

Contemporary front garden in Hampstead

Making a Grand Entrance

This is the front garden to a large detached house in Hampstead with an 'L' shaped garden that wraps around the house.

Contemporary balcony garden with glass balustrades and travertine paving

Contemporary and Beyond

Our clients knew that their garden was an extremely valuable asset, but the way that it was arranged did not realise its full potential.


Contemporary roof terrace

On Top of the World

This is a large roof terrace wrapping around three sides of a modern city apartment in Camden, North West London. The significant glazing to the apartment takes advantage of the far-reaching views towards Hampstead Heath to the north-west and the City of London to the south-east.

Small contemporary garden

Contemporary Squares

This is the broadly rectangular back garden to a sizeable, detached property in a quiet leafy road in Hayes, Kent.

Small contemporary garden 

Chic with Kids

This was the invaluable outside space that came with our clients’ garden flat in a prestigious area of London but it was impractical for the young family.

Our clients requested a practical, but beautiful design with real ‘wow’ factor.

Contemporary garden waterside garden

Contemporary Waterside

This was a very interesting project in that the garden was on an island in the middle of the Thames only accessible by footbridge.

Modern courtyard style garden

Forest Hill to Beverley Hills

This was a suburban garden on a steeply sloping site, rising up at the back of the house via some very steep steps, rendering much of the garden unusable.


Outside room garden for entertaining

Garden Room

Our clients wanted an interesting and inviting space with a contemporary feel, to act as an extension to their dining and living areas – somewhere they could entertain and relax. 

Roof garden with composite decking

Up on the Roof

The roof terrace has spectacular views over interesting surrounding buildings, including the Natural History Museum, but the inhospitable, exposed, sloping space made entertaining and relaxing difficult. 

Modern garden with traditional garden features

Traditional but Modern

Our clients wanted to open up the garden revealing it’s true size, whilst still retaining it’s traditional character. They also had a big birthday party in the garden coming up, so time was of the essence!


Contemporary garden

An Olympian's Oasis

This was a bungalow-style property in Brentwood, Essex that was undergoing a complete transformation and effectively being rebuilt.

Modern garden on a raised level

Glass Balustrade & Bifold Doors

This garden was on two levels with a small well area outside the basement kitchen.

Traditional garden modern garden

Modern & Traditional Meet

This garden is on a steeply sloping, triangular plot with complicated level changes. 


Small modern garden

Double Dutch

Rather than go with straight lines and angles, we chose a bold circular theme for the design, which ties in very well with the 1930’s style of the house.

Small garden with contemporary sandstone orb feature

Love a Triangle

The plot was broadly triangular, which has its own design challenges, and our clients wanted a strong scheme with a contemporary edge to complement their interior furnishings and to provide interest throughout the year.

Room at the end of the small garden

Inside Out

The garden of an 18th century cottage in a conservation area. Our client had a very hectic lifestyle, but wanted to be able to use her garden as a valuable outside entertaining space and as somewhere to relax after a busy day.


Modern garden with blue glass path

Path to Enlightenment

The existing rectangular patio lead us to this design and we decided to square off the rather awkwardly shaped plot  and divide it with a series of rectangles forming the lawn, play area, path and planting beds.

Small garden with new gym leading from front to rear of house

Garden Gym

This was a small suburban garden who's owners wanted to also turn a small garage into a gym that overlooked the garden.

Small garden at the rear and front garden rebuilt

Urban Oasis

These are the front and rear gardens to a double-fronted, period property in Sydenham. Its owners had spent a lot of time renovating the property and wanted to bring the gardens up to the same standard
