The clients did not enjoy gardening and had no real space to store lawnmowers & tools so wanted to remove the overgrown field grass and frame their front plot with a low-maintenance planting scheme.
Inspiration & Design
The central path was excellent symmetry for the entrance to the house but the existing light grey paved path looked old fashioned. We replaced the path with a slate grey modern slab layed on a weed control fabric and dressed the remaining area with purple slate.
The boundary to the plot was planted with slow growing Box hedging which only requires light pruning annually.
Two large Phormiums framed the entrance from the pavement creating a statement with height and form, with smaller grasses planted closer to the front door for movement and additional colour.
