Project: Small Family Garden
This contemporary two-storey townhouse, which has been beautifully converted, is situated in the middle of town.
The brief was to create a practical family garden with low maintenance planting and upkeep.
The front garden serves as a driveway and parking for the family. This area is primarily paved with slate-colour block paving interspersed with a few planted areas. The focal point is a large planted bed on the western corner. Here a stunning Japanese dogwood (Cornus kousa) is underplanted with Geraniums, Liriope and grasses.
The small back garden has an extensive patio with raised beds planted with herbs and perennials.
A narrow border frames the small lawn. All-season interest plantings like Euphorbias, Bergenia, Hellebores, Hemerocallis, Verbenas, Miscanthus grasses and a few woody plants such as a small Hydrangea’ Little Lime’ ensure year-round loveliness.
