Originally this garden had about 8 old Rose beds in the middle of the lawn and a few sad shrubs around the edges. Our client wanted to open the space up for kids and dogs yet have a feast of different plants and colour.
I took some detailed pictures of the planing last week. it is starting to knit together and become more than the sum of its parts.
One great but tricky part of garden design is making sure the plants combine well and compliment each other as well as take over from each other when the other is flagging and has given its show for the year.
We used box balls and Hakonechloa macro the backbone of the garden especially since they both look good in the winter.
