Garden Design Installation in Ruyton-XI-Towns

This garden was all grass with sparse borders, now it is low maintenance with a wealth of complimentary colours and textures.

A pathway in Bradstone textured grey paving slabs now leads from the front gate to the door and new patio, this is bordered in parts by Euonymus 'Emerald and Gold' which will over time knit together.

A new sleeper bed skirts round the building in the west of the garden, this has been planted with a wonderful mix of evergreen shrubs, perennials and grasses to provide colour and interest throughout the year.

Both plum slate and Cotswold gravel fill out the areas between the sleeper beds and the pathway, in the west this is broken up by a sleeper deck.

Four large dark wooden planters are located throughout the garden, providing further contrast against the vibrant hues, these have been planted with 20cm box balls and perennials, adding colour throughout the year.

Four mature trees - Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson Queen', Magnolia x brooklynensis 'Elizabeth', Prunus avium 'Stella' Cherry Tree and Cornus controversa 'Variegata',  have been planted throughout the garden to provide further interest.

In the south-west of the garden the raised bed has been dedicated to self-sufficiency with Ballerina apple trees, strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, together with herbs - Rosemary, Thyme, Mint.
