The client, a keen gardener, required a garden that would allow her to pursue her hobby with much reduced physical strain. Brick raised beds, a smaller easily mown lawn with brick edged mowing strip and improved planting beds have enabled the customer to continue to garden. A new patio and seating is now a well used area of the outdoor space.
The garden was constructed by Aire Valley Landscapes and subsequently planted by Essence Garden Design. The planting 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.
