Small front garden in Scone

  • traditional front garden with awkward access to front door in need of  major upgrade; client is a keen gardener & was referred by another happy Shades of Green client ( 2016)
  • informal garden required, with plenty of planting areas; easy to maintain with opportunities for pottering & just sitting
  • path to front door now passes under fragrant archway & up wide steps onto  raised arrival platform for meeting & greeting
  • sinuous gravel path creates journey through garden to small seating area at far end; second seating area allows garden to be viewed from different angles
  • existing hedge retained but hard pruned & trellis panels divide the space from adjacent garden
  • areas of light & shade allow different planting styles, from traditional herbaceous through to woodland floor
  • planted early summer 2017; photographs taken late September the same year 
  • garden constructed by www.karegardens.com

“Delighted with both the new garden and the planting design. Cannot believe how it has completely transformed the front garden. The changing of the front step was a master stroke…on a scale of 1-5 I rate it a 6!”
