This was an area in a large established country garden where soft landscaping and new planting were needed.
The soil was heavy clay and there was an awkward fence around the existing lake that needed some subtle disguise. Winter interest with a low maintenance approach was the idea around the lake and to create a curved mow path to allow tractor access.
In front of the fence area we created a lush mixed border with year round interest. The colours the client loved are pinks, blues oranges and purples with a natural cottage feel with grasses. We had to move a large existing bed of struggling rhododendrons to a more suitable site out of the full sun. This project was very hands on and soil preparation was key to a successful planting scheme.
