Paint Box

We placed the most exciting planting beds near to the house so they could be enjoyed as much from inside as outside. The 6 beds were divided into colour groupings; predominantly blues, tones of pinks and then cool and warm whites together. Anchoring shrubs and grasses are repeated through all of them to give rhythm – we think of them much as a paint box where new highlights of colour are added and taken away as the garden matures. A gravel and stone path runs through a crisp lawn linking the morning and evening terraces with shadier spring planting at the end acting as a backdrop to the whole garden.
