Fire Pit Feature Project by Catherine Clancy

Catherine Clancy Greenwich Garden

This month on the blog we are featuring Catherine Clancy; who has long been a trusted garden designer by Solus Decor.


Catherine is based in London and designs residential projects throughout London and the South East. Catherine’s garden style is based around beautiful, careful and considered design with a simple aesthetic and a focus on quality to ensure longevity.  Catherine works closely with clients to create a garden with a wow factor that also fulfills the needs of everyday life whether for a family or an individual.

We are focusing on a recent project completed by Catherine Clancy,  The project is located in Greenwich in south East London. The starting point is the client brief, which then allows Catherine to then move forward with the design process.

Client Brief:

We have a small back garden in Greenwich that we had not really used in the four years since we moved in. An old shed took up much of the space and the rest of the garden was planted with large trees and bushes, leaving little available space to enjoy. We asked Catherine to design a patio garden that we could spend lots of time in and have various areas for entertaining.

Catherine worked with Bes Landscapes to create the perfect outdoor living space for her clients to enjoy with friends and family.  Catherine has carefully combined dark grey stone with squid ink paint softened with beautiful planting to give a contemporary look and feel to this outdoor space.

The seating area in this garden is centered around our Elevated Halo fire pit in cinder, which compliments the garden tones perfectly and allows Catherine’s clients to make the use of the garden throughout the year.  The elevated halo is available with natural gas, LPG and bio fuel, making it adaptable for a variety of outdoor spaces.


If you are looking to make the most of your outdoor space get in touch with Catherine to see how she can help you.
