At first glance this looks like a huge and rambling garden. And this was the intention. The garden is in fact not a particularly large space in the Karen area of Nairobi. “You can do the most amazing things in small spaces, even balconies,” Chloe Humphreys of The Landscape Studio tells me.
A loose planting design with flower beds surrounding the small cottage lends a “wild feeling”. Tall grass and hedge-like plants are mixed with a variety of white flowers. The owner of this cottage, who loves flower arranging, need look no further than her own garden to create the perfect arrangements.
