When our clients bought this property bordering the park there was a mature garden with well established parterre beds. However the borders were very overgrown and needed editing and redesigning to fit our clients’ lifestyle.
We took out some ugly conifers and overcrowded shrubs. We designed a vegetable plot and hedged it with Myrtle, we de-cluttered the rear border allowing light to enter in from the park behind and replanted it with flowers in soft yellows, whites and lime greens, creating movement and light in the garden. We installed a swing and a sunken trampoline. The courtyard was planted very simply with different sized box balls and around the house we added masses of roses and colourful scented plants. Our client has become hooked on gardening now and is really enjoying the seasonal changes of the plants throughout the year.
