This Victorian terrace front garden had become overgrown and the client, an artist and gardener herself, wanted cleaner more contemporary planting, while keeping the traditional hard landscaping. We decided to retain the lovely silver-leafed weeping pear as a dominant feature and create a strong design around that.
In a front garden it is important that the planting creates impact as an entrance and looks good all year round. The garden is built on a slope so neat box edging with Libertia rising above it ensure the garden also looks interesting from street level. In the final agreed scheme I have tried to give a sense of her love of plants and personality.
