21 Chestnut Road, A garden for all seasons.
Here are examples of how to add interest with various objects, using various statues.
The front garden you will not deliberately find the colour orange. From early spring right through the seasons pink, blue, white and later red dominate. By restricting the palette in certain areas , it creates a much more harmonious feeling. Whilst the colours and shades compliment, the other factor is shape, and here the spikes of the lupins contrast with the orbs of the alliums. The foliage plays as important a part in this combination as do the flowers.
To maximise all planting opportunities I like to make use of pots and arches.
Above is a good example of how shape can give more interest to a border and by repeating the same colours as in other parts of the garden, this
can help to hold everything together.
Problem solved, how to get the lawn mower onto the lawn. The slate gives a firm area and the house leeks helps to break it up. This area has changed dramatically, so that today there is no longer a lawn.
