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

“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!”
