Garden design photo's

Opening up a bricked up door and training the Wisteria from the side of the house out along the wall has created a highly scented magical area for a few weeks in late spring. 

How to incorperate a large field

 into the garden.

Two separate designs here. The laural hedge is screening a tarmac parking and turning circle. The home made chestnut fence is dividing a very large garden and creating different garden rooms. Interesting pathways now lead around the side of the hedge.    

Retaining the steep bank with railways sleepers has allowed us to screen off the top road with this planting. 

 

 

A 'Black Lace' elderberry with

 foxgloves.

 Sambuchus nigra 'Black lace' is

 certainly a plant worth having, especially

 if it is grown against a white wall.  

We had an imput with the intitial design

 idea for this hotel garden, but the planting

 design is totally ours. 

 It has to be of interest right throughout the

 year, and has to bright and cheerful.

 

The gazebo has been added to the hotel garden so that weddings can be held in the garden. Specific planting can alter the mood of different areas and create interesting vistas. A garden that looks the same from every spot is rather boring. 

Stepping back and moving to the left changes the view and the colour scheme.

The red chairs are in charge.

It can be seen from outer space, apparently. 

The entrance to the wedding garden is guaranteed to cheer everyone up, even the mother in law.
