Front Garden

Sherfield English, Near Romsey

My clients wanted to change the front garden from an ordinary lawned area into something pretty and joyful that would evoke a rural cottage feel.

A circular lawn is surrounded by mature shrubs and light pink flowers


The design focuses around two circular lawns, one either side of the front door. 

The planting shown in the image gets more sun than the other side which has wetter ground conditions and much more in the shade.  The challenge was to ensure that there was cohesion to both sides of the garden despite them having different requirements.

The Garden Oozes Charm & Colour

Blush-coloured shrub roses sit amongst other green shrubs and topiary.
Agastache black adder plants grow between a path and house wall with many tall, blue coloured flowers.

Agastache Black Adder billows against the wall. It flowers all summer long in pale blue and the leaves are aromatic too.

All in the detail

Here are some details of the plants
