NEW COTTAGE GARDEN
It was a rare opportunity to design for a new build and blank canvass in the sought after Cotswold village of Southrop.
Initially we planted up the sun soaked front with pretty herbaceous plants: Lavenders, Lichnis, Eryngiums, Salvias, Verbena, Pennisetum and many more. Several mature trees planted in the lawns helped create an avenue feel to the driveway.
The back garden features seperate garden rooms which merge and flow from one to the other. We gave the client the huge variety of plants she wanted: a gravel garden, a shady border, roses, roses and more roses, a quiet place for her Buddha and a herb garden.
‘Sorry I’ve been out of touch – amongst other things I’ve been busy in my beautiful garden! It is coming along well and lovely to discover which plants are coming out even in these early months…’
