This was a project which took over a year to complete. The existing soil was solid clay and needed a vast amount of soil preparation, drainage and improvement.
The planting was to include specimen trees, year round colour and winter structure. The use of successional flowering perennials and bulbs really enhanced the garden and gave wonderful colour for long periods of time.
Purples and blues were used to contrast and soften the gold’s, oranges and pinks in the mixed borders.
Long avenues of specimen trees with scented blossom, divided the large green space to create lovely walk ways, Lavender was used near the house in box parterres under planted with red tulips and Allium hollandicum ‘Purple Sensation’.
