Based on sustainability, the emphasis of this garden was low maintenance by the use of self seeding perennials and grasses in a mixed matrix and naturalistic style. This method of planting aimed to give the impression of random groups of planting, such as that found in the wild.
Many of the perennials used were deliberately chosen for their vertical structure to provide out of season interest, whilst the sunken fire-pit symbolises summer barbecues and an outdoor log fire for the colder seasons.
Whilst this garden is perfect for relaxation and entertaining, it aims to demonstrate that sustainability and nature can live happily alongside one another. All perennials, shrubs and herbs are carefully selected to attract birds, bees or butterflies.
