A cottage country planting design

These clients had bought a beautiful cottage which they had done up in a lovely contemporary style. Their garden was ‘all to the front’ and encompassed a good- sized car-parking area. The garden was south-facing and very sunny and had a road running along in front of it. The brief was to create a shelterbelt from the wind and screening from the road so the clients could enjoy their garden with some degree of privacy. There was scope in this large garden with generous borders to create both ‘hot’ and ‘cool’ planting schemes. With a long retaining wall running the length of the garden we were able to have plants cascading down the length of the wall and a variety of fruit trees along the wall behind. All the planting was wildlife friendly, encouraging a wide variety of visitors to the garden.

Plants used in this design:

Verbena
Verbena bonariensis’Lollipop’ | Euphorbia coralloides | Imperata ‘Red Baron’ | Diascia

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL...

"We are absolutely delighted with the results and are amazed at how mature the garden looked even in its first year! Lisa has provided us with a beautiful palette of colour and texture cleverly using a mixture of trees, climbers, shrubs and herbaceous perennials to create all-year-round colour, warmth and interest.

Thanks to Lisa’s expertise, flair and skills we have managed to transform this rather drab, exposed plot into the foundations of a beautiful country garden which will provide such a great deal of pleasure for us in the years to come.

Lisa is extremely professional and is honest and transparent about costs at every stage of the project. She is very knowledgeable and clearly loves her work! We would have no hesitation in recommending her services. "
