A practical and fully planted front garden in Redland
To make the most of this generously proportioned front garden the existing lawn and hedging were removed and the garden entirely replanted. An evergreen hedge lines two boundaries of the garden helping to conceal bin and bike storage. Plank paving in basalt creates a stepping stone path for access. Thyme and grasses act as an evergreen carpet between pavers.
Being a front garden it was important to create a welcoming effect with the planting. A beautiful semi-mature Magnolia was planted as a focal point. Climbing Hydrangeas will gradually cover the walls of the house, while a cedar planter by the front entrance features a corkscrew hazel with interesting red foliage and corkscrew stems that look spectacular during winter.
