Neill Strain Gardens

Neill Strain is one of the worlds most accomplished floral designers. Based in Belgravia, his client list is a veritable 'who’s who’. Neill has designed Chelsea Island’s sixth floor garden terrace.

"I use floral designs to enhance the natural characteristics of a venue and its owner’s personality. Designing the garden space for Chelsea Island has demanded a similar approach – and since the building creates open space, light, and a refuge from the busy city life of central London, the garden similarly focuses on light, peace and tranquility, bringing outdoor space into interiors and vice-versa."

"I have planted bee-friendly trees, shrubs and plants for the spring, summer and autumn seasons, when worker bees are searching for nectar and pollen. Hexagonal honeycomb shapes will also feature in the garden, and flower-beds will be densely packed with a tapestry of texture and colour. The central pond is an attractive focal point, reflects the glass structure of the building and creates an area of peace. The shaded grass area near the pond is ideal for yoga, meditation and contemplation."
