Initial visits to the garden revealed huge potential despite the prevailing wind blowing strongly from the West.
The existing plants are well-established and in good condition. The client requested the removal of the large pampas clump and a small buddleja bush.
The design takes into account removal and replacement of the pampas with a large shrub or a tree.
The gravel will be removed along the front wall and the degrading weed fabric discarded. Plants such as euonymus, twisted hazel and tierella are chosen for their year-round interest and underplanting with spring bulbs will continue the provision of nectar for insects throughout the year.
