All of the renovations had been completed on the house, now it was time to make the entrance to it more welcoming.
An L-shaped raised sleeper border contained most of the sub-soil from the driveway excavations and the only sign of life contained within it were from the weeds. The sub-soil, along with the weeds were removed and subsequently replaced with top soil in readiness for the planting.
In order to provide structural interest, 3 Prunus ‘Snow Goose’ were planted along with evergreen shrubs such as Ceanothus, Choisya and Viburnum tinus which provided a backbone to the borders. A variety of perennials and bulbs complemented this planting and extended the season of interest.
Torrential rain towards the end of the planting meant that few photos were taken.
Following a harsh spring with the ‘Beast from the East’, planting has filled out and the borders have been transformed.
