Low maintenance Front Garden
The owner needed a redesign of the front garden to improve access, storage and appearance and to reduce maintenance. The front garden was being used a parking and wheelie bin space, and planting was spilling over paths and the front pavement. The owner is a self-confessed non-gardener, so any plants need to look after themselves. He also wants the option of being able to park visitor cars in the garden space. The solution was a low-maintenance gravel garden with raised beds, tough planting, and chip & tar paths. We also gave the home two clear entrance-ways: the public path to the front door, and an occasional path from the front door to the side door. INNOVATION. Using 'chip and tar' for the driveway and path, a smart inexpensive solution.
