Planting design in Baldock


Clients’ brief:

My clients have a raised border in front of their patio. This split-level garden has steps clearly in view from the glass tri-fold kitchen doors and the view needed softening with a beautiful planting scheme.

It was important for my clients to have colour across the seasons and be dog-proof. As a solution to keep the border from being rifled with, I planted a low growing flowering hedge, Escallonia ‘Red Dream’ which framed the lyrical grasses and perennials perfectly.

The planting design enhances the view out into the garden and my clients are delighted with their new-look border, which will look even better with new growth, come the spring and summer..
