Town Garden

Romsey, Hampshire

When I saw the garden in early Spring 2021 it was overgrown with shrubs, borage and Spanish bluebells yet it oozed with charm and character.

My client was open to ideas -
he knew that the garden wasn't working but he didn't know where to start . . . .

We surveyed the  garden so that we could get a sense of its scale  and designed a new planting plan with roses, penstemons, verbascum and lavenders.

Take a look at some of images that describe the garden better than words!

A brick path leads through to a planted garden. In the border, trees and shrubs obscure a wooden fence.
A brick path curves down towards a patio in the foreground. In the background green shrubs fill the garden.
A brick path curves towards a modern looking pergola with light wood and crisp lines.

The overgrown shrubs are either taken out or trimmed right back.
The brick steps take up the change in level and lavender edges the paths

The pergola was designed to inject a contemporary element into the garden as a lift into the 21st Century.
