Family Garden, Pewsey

Autumn 2014 
Photographs Michael Crockett

 

Concept

The front garden was laid to lawn and not used - the family needed a reason to venture into the space.  It was also the largest outdoor space they had: the rear garden was dominated by a climbing frame, swing and swimming pool.  To encourage use of the garden, the design incorporated a pathway to take you around the garden and the borders included flowers for cutting. A new side access was also created to the oil tank concealed behind a yew hedge.

Construction

The dominant feature of the garden is the herringbone brick path: it leads you from the driveway navigating it's way around the garden through a dividing yew hedge into the main garden.  Constructed with reclaimed brick, the path provides a route around the garden for adults on foot and children on trikes.

Planting

This scheme is dominated by the greens of Alchemilla mollis & Buxus semperivens which are  accented by white perennials and shrubs such as Anemone 'Honorine Jobart' & Digitalis f. albiflora. The perennials range from the vivid blues of Geranium 'Johnson's Blue' &  Phlox 'Blue Evening' moving through to the dark hues of Aquilegia 'Black Barlow' & Anthricus 'Ravenswing'.
