An urban garden for sun and shade
An urban garden to draw the eye
In this traditionally long and thin plot the space has been re-allocated to allow for best use of the limited sunshine. The garden areas are defined by raised beds in oak, with a pergola along the garage and a gravelled seating area drawing the eye from an unattractive building which has come to dominate the outlook. Planting will be a mixture of shade- and sun-loving plants which will be placed appropriately in the garden. The horizontal fencing finish also helps to distract the eye, and will make a subtly coloured screen against which the shadows of tall perennials will be thrown in the late afternoon.
