Front garden design using Pittisporum

/, Front Gardens/Front garden design using Pittisporum

We completed this garden design and build about two years ago.

We decided to make a real feature out of the beds by the side of the drive by planting a row of 5 Yew columns.

However the fence was very unsightly behind the Yews so we made a bold decision and chose all the major, different coloured Pittisporums that can grow to minimum 8 foot. Now it has become a very attractive and unusual hedge with the small frilly leaves of the Pittisporum contrasting with the dark columns of Yew.

We then make great curves of box hedging with box balls amidst quite abundant and colourful planting to give a Wow factor for anyone coming in from the main road.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
