A plant lover’s sanctuary
A shallow garden with an uninteresting lawn and fence was transformed into a beautiful outside space with seating areas, with a fountain and an olive tree in a large decorative planter forming the focal points from all corners of the garden. The circular raised seating area is lit up at night providing a secluded are for evening drinks and dining.
‘We had just moved into a house with a smallish back garden with a pizza oven, a magnolia tree and poor quality grass surrounded by gravel paths. We now have a delightful easily managed restful space as an extension of our living space.
Jane Bingham of Cheshire Garden looked at what we had, ascertained what we wanted and what was possible and prepared a proposal which she discussed with us. We finalised the details and talked to contractors she had arranged for us. The hard landscaping work was carried out by Classic Landscape of Tamworth, comprising the removal of the pizza oven, preparing foundations and laying brick paths and stone areas and preparing planting areas with the addition of recycled compost. The planting was done by ourselves and we now have the pleasure of watching things grow whilst sitting in our own garden.’
