Project Front Garden

This small project was for the front garden only, concentrating on a completely new planting scheme and driveway. The new tegula block paved drive provided an extra parking space and more room for the cars.

The existing Birch tree remained and was underplanted with low grasses, ferns hostas and hellebores. The new planting design included bamboos and dogwoods for screening, with drifts of tall grasses, bulbs, verbenas and seasonal perennials to create interest all year round. Large rocks and cobbles break up the planting and create sculptural interest.
