Country Garden, Wroughton

Autumn 2015

Design

Perennial borders were created around the existing terrace which anchors the garden to the house whilst leading the eye out to the countryside beyond.  The layout reflects the Georgian love of symmetry whilst the abundant planting adds a more relaxed note.  Topiary balls of Buxus smeperivens lend structure.

Planning

The borders were phased over 18 months and good preparation was key to the success of the planting.  A large quantity of organic compost was dug in and all annual and perennial weeds were removed.  The borders were finished with steel lawn edging to create a clean edge.

Planting

Tellima grandiflora and Tulipa 'Spring Green' & 'Angelique' herald a successional planting scheme of blues, purples and whites with hi-lights of pinks. Geranium 'Brookside',  Alchemilla mollis, Salvia veridis and S. verticillata 'Purple Rain' are repeated throughout whilst Crambe cordifolia and Thalictrum delavayi give a frothy finish.
