The client is a keen gardener. She required a garden that would allow her to continue gardening with much reduced physical strain.
We designed the garden in a Cottage Garden style. Raised beds were built from brick that matched the house. Brick pavers edged the gravel paths. The circular lawn was surrounded with brick edging. This makes it easier to mow. A new patio was laid in riven sandstone pavers. The garden can now be enjoyed from the garden seats.
Planting beds were improved with compost. The planting nearest the house features Cottage Garden stalwarts such as Digitalis, Aquilegia, Roses and Clematis. For the very damp clay soil at the bottom of the garden, plants were selected to cope with the demanding growing conditions.
The garden was constructed by Aire Valley Landscapes.
It was planted by Essence Garden Design.
