Victorian Back Garden, Inverleith, Edinburgh
A split level garden with a bare and dark, basement courtyard area. A flight of stone steps leads to the raised section - mostly lawn with a few shrubs. The client wanted an attractive outlook from her study window onto a seating area with lawn, planting and a shed in the upper garden. The planting was to be different shades of green with pale white and pink flowers in the main as the light in the garden gave these a translucent quality which looked beautiful in the garden.
Plants used in this design:
Viola cornuta ‘Victoria’s Blush’
Actaea simplex ‘Brunette’
Sedum ‘Frosty Morn’
