The customers required a simplified, lower maintenance front garden with improved front door access and areas to sit out . They preferred a cottage garden style of planting.
The lawn was re-oriented on the diagonal to create space. We put in a wide welcoming sandstone path leading directly to the front door. The existing walling was re-used to create raised beds and allow simpler maintenance by the customers. The original lawn was also retained and re-shaped.
David Shaw and his team constructed the garden.
The planting was completed by Essence Garden Design. We planted some tall narrow trees ( fastigiate) along with low maintenance shrubs, perennials and grasses. Some of the customer’s existing plants were re-used including a favourite rose. This gave the garden immediate maturity.
