My client inherited a large front garden that had been shingled over. Rather than raised beds, we suggested to him that we design a shingle garden in the spirit of Derek Jarman and Beth Chatto.
Over time the plants will fill up the space whilst leaving a good amount of space to wander around the shingle and sit in the breakfast sun. The garden is very low maintenance which is what our busy client wanted and yet full of interesting shapes and seasonal colour. We used big limestone blocks to anchor the shingle and give the airy plants a contrast of weight and volume.
Testimonial from Scott Massey, Brighton
I had my garden remodelled by Andrew at Glorious Gardens just 6 weeks ago. Despite the hot and dry conditions this year my garden has really started to flourish. Using my brief Andrew has used inspired choices to give me the prairie and meadow look to my borders and rear garden. He intelligently used the rockery which I had previously intended to hide to create an amazing display in the front garden too. Clear designs and ideas from start to finish with regular updates and options made the whole design and implementation of the project seamless. Highly recommended.
