This garden space was looking very tired with tatty palm trees along the edges and a ragged lawn.
Our client wanted a garden that was contemporary, colourful and yet very low maintenance.
They also wanted to sit comfortably outside facing the enormous southern sky.
We used the black grass Ophiopogon, pink flowering Armeria maritima and the bright green grass, Sesleria.
The hedge around the edges to make the space into a private room, Gresilinia, didn’t take on the more windy south east facing side so we replaced it with Euonymus Emerald Gold.
We also added some blue with a smaller variety of Echinops, ‘ Veitch’s Blue’
