A blaze of colour in the front garden

A garden planted solely with heather offered very little for its owners, now after a redesign the garden is full of interest, colour, and texture.

Two beautiful ornamental grasses, Anemanthele lessoniana and Carex comans bronze have been used throughout the planting to provide to provide yearly colour with graceful arching foliage

A robust evergreen New Zealand Flax adds a striking element to this border with gorgeous red colours on strappy sword shaped leaves

The green and yellow of Euonymous japonicus 'Ovatus Aureus' delivers upright evergreen form to the planting scheme

The front of the border planted with Lady's Mantle, English Lavender, and Heuchera 'Plum Pudding' will spill out breaking its hard edge

With upright spires of purple flowers in May and bronze-green leaves, Ajuga reptans 'Caitlins Gaint, will provide excellent ground cover as it matures

Sedum Matrona 'Autumn Joy' with flat broad heads of deep pink flowers, is not only attractive to butterflies but is at its best late in the season

Penstemon 'Hidcote Pink' with its tubular bell flowers contrasts well against the fountain like clump of Anemanthele lessoniana

Achillea millefolium 'Cerise Queen' with flat flower heads on tall stems provides colour throughout summer 

Digitalis parviflora 'Milk Chocolate' will arouse the senses and stop viewers in their tracks to enquire about its identity, with small cylindical funnels above dark green leaves

Hellebores will provide early season colour nodding gently from the front of the border

Strikingly architectural Allium 'Purple Sensation' will fill the border with starry spherical purple heads in early summer

A flush of movement and year round colour to grace the car park

The front garden to this established house in Clee St Margaret, borders the car park. To start with we redesigned it to provide movement, contrast and seasonal colour for them to enjoy throughout the year.

First we had to remove any of the perennial weeds which were present in the soil, bindweed, ground elder and nettles were prevalent.

A path was constructed to permit access and lead the eye through the design and for this local stone was used to provide a firmer footing and tangiently link the design to its surroundings.

The herbaceous border we filled with some firm favourites;

  • Grasses, Stipa tennuissima, Carex buchananii comans and Anemanthele lessoniana will form fountain like clumps of evergreen foliage, which adds sensory movement to the design as they billow in the slightest breeze.
  • Cornus alba 'Sibirica' has been chosen for its bright red stems, which will provide winter colour and white flowers in May and June
  • Nandina domestica 'Firepower' a compact evergreen rounded shrub with bamboo like leaves that turn red in autumn, provides a taste for the unusual
  • Crocosmia 'Anna Marie' bears masses of orangey-red flowers throughout summer, nodding slightly towards those that walk through the border
  • Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace' will grow to 3 metres in height but will tolerate being cut back. It lends a deep burgundy foliage to the planting scheme fruiting in autumn.
  • The smokebush Cotinus coggyria 'Royal Purple' is a rounded shrub with rounded leaves which will give a good backdrop to the whole planting scheme
  • Juniperus scopulorum 'Blue Arrow' adds structure and with its pointed form punctuates the design
  • Tall and whispy form has been introduced with bronze leaved fennel (Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum') and Verbena bonariensis
  • Hebe 'Red Edge' planted at the front of the garden border will provide year round interest, green leaves with narrow red margins, purple flowers in summer
  • A head turner of a plant Sanguisorba 'Tanna' with green groundcover in spring is complimented by wine-red flowers in summer
  • Skimmia japonica 'Rubella' has been planted under the lilac trees at the back of the border, which will produce panicles of red buds in late winter and white flowers in spring
  • Japanese anemone (Anemone hybrida 'September Charm') lifts the planting plan producing masses of pink flowers on tall stems late in summer
  • The wall has been planted with Aubretia 'Purple Cascade', Sedum rupestre, Nepeta x faassenii, Persicaria 'Donald Lowndes', Alyssum, London Pride, Alchemilla mollis, and Geranium spp. breaking the rugged dominance of this wall
  • A thick layer of wood chip covers the entire bed to act as a mulch, reducing the maintenance and increasing the moisture retention during the summer months

The overall effect is one that will mature and develop in a relatively short space of time, but crucially will be low maintenance.

Garden Design Ideas - Bare Root Hedging - Garden Design - Garden Edging Ideas - Garden Landscaping Ideas - Hornby Garden Designs - Garden Planting Ideas - 

Bareroot trees, shrubs, roses and perennials

The air may be cold, but in the horticultural world we are in the best time of year to buy and plant deciduous trees, hedging plants, roses and several perennials.

The bareroot (BR) season starts at the beginning of November and finishes in April when the plants are dormant.

Bareroot means grown in soil as opposed to container and dug up during the dormant season, with no soil or compost around the roots. They will be cheaper when compared to containerised stock, and there will typically be a greater selection to choose from.

If you are thinking about a box parterre filled with roses, an orchard, a fruit garden, or a specimen tree, contact Hornby Garden Designs to discuss the advantages of bareroot stock.

Garden Design Ideas - Shooters Hill Hall - Front Garden Design - Garden Design Pictures - Landscape - Hornby Garden Designs - Garden Design Shrewsbury - UK

Gardens redesigned after 200 years

To screen the car park and frame the view for wedding guests of Shooters Hill Hall, we have planted 96 metres of rootball Cherry Laurel Hedging (Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia') at a height of 1.5 metres for instant appeal. Planted at 0.6 metre centres the hedge will provide an instant back drop removing the parked cars from any photographs taken in the grounds of this prestigious wedding event in Shrewsbury.

Lining the driveway with an instant hedge frames the view concentrating the guests view on the magnificent main house, as they travel up the long driveway.

We have consulted the genius loci for our clients outstanding wedding venue in Shropshire.

To frame the view of the main house as guests ascend the long driveway we have suggested planting an avenue of Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata' at 6 metre spacings.

To provide a plain backdrop for stunning wedding photos we have suggested planting a Yew hedge (Taxus baccata) along the driveway side of the car park. On entering the car park the hedge will be softened by planting evergreen shrubs at its base, to add further interest for guests delight.
