web-img_9985My client’s wish was to bring colour into the garden and so we introduced new species, removed some unwanted plants stock, along with an 8 yard skip full of clay and replaced with top soil. A garden borne out of after-thought on a new development plot – full of homogenised evergreen planting with a monochrome colour palette.

Relocated plants were combined into more cohesive combinations within the planting plan and we added beautiful feature trees to add height above the boundary. By planting trees that produce both flowers and fruits we aim to encourage the local birds and other pollinators into the garden.

The borders have been filled with an abundance of spring-flowering bulbs and a rich diversity of texture and form has been created with under-planting using shrubs and herbaceous perennials.

The next stage of development will include a seated arbour with scented climbers accompanied by Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’.
