Border Redesign

A Border Redesign for a
north facing garden

This border is north facing but sheltered by two adjacent walls. It was a bare patch gathering weeds.

We put down lots of good quality mulch to enrich the soil and planted an evergreen hedge under the window using Viburnum Eve Price which flowers through the Winter and through into the Spring too.

In the foreground we grouped Eurphorbia purpurea to brighten the aspect and it looks stunning here with it's lime green flowers.

A redesign of the sunny side

My clients wanted to make more of the sunny aspect to this part of the garden but didn't want to become a slave to gardening.


We kept many of the mature boundary planting and used low maintenance shrubs through the border for winter structure intersperced with herbaceous perennials for summer colour.


Here groups of  Cornus Midwinter Fire, their bright orange stems contrasting so well against darker foliage plants like Pittosporum Tom Thumb and heucheras.
