This garden, which won’t come into it’s own until the end of summer, has just been planted.

But underneath the soil, tonnes of which we had to bring in when we took 10 skip loads of driveway rubble away, are planted little packets ready to burst open.

This garden design in West Sussex uses two Yew pyramids to sabilize the planting and bring symmetry to the lovely little cottage which has it’s own triangular pattern in the roof.

Around each Yew are planted 13 sumptuous fragrant roses. And then the planting plan design spreads out with Dahlias, Heleniums, Pennisetum grasses, Digitalis and Kniphofia – all ready to give a passionate, abundant red, yellow and orange planting colour scheme throughout the growing months.

Little annuals will be grown to fill in any gaps and cement the perennials together.

The aspect of garden design that is most important here is making sure when one plant has it’s spectacular flowering event another is ready to take it’s place when the previous show is over- a bit like when one TV show finishes the next show tries to capture your attention in case you turn off!

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.
