Buckinghamshire Front GardenBefore and After
Converted originally from an old school house, this Buckinghamshire front garden is let down by its confusing, messy entrance.
With a redesign of the space and careful use of colours and materials, the house and front garden are unified, giving the entrance a sense of arrival. The raised bed ties in the entrance on one flat level, at the same time giving the planting good drainage above the compacted clay soil.
The box topiary will eventually knit together forming one undulating evergreen mass above the new raised brick planting bed. The top worked weeping silver pear trees will also form a continuous froth of bright silvery leaves contrasting in colour and texture with the box below.
