A Controlled Garden

Controlled-garden2

The brief here was to make the garden very easy to manage, neat and clean, with a separate area for their much loved Crufts winning dog (who loved digging and chewing in the garden). I designed two large planting spaces in the terrace which became like planters, and a small lawn with pebble-filled mowing strips to keep edges clean. Two Prunus serrula trees are planted at the end of the garden eventually framing the rural view. I like the way the client has really made her garden an outside room.

Finally you can compare with the garden when I first came to it.
