This front garden is in desperate need of an overhaul. It is large enough to accommodate two cars comfortably, and the client wishes to combine the aesthetics of a planted front garden with a practical driveway. They would like low-maintenance but with flowering throughout the year. The existing boundaries need renovation. There is a mature tree that should remain.
The design has been set at a 45° angle to the house to make entering and exiting to the driveway easier. Sandstone sets provide a solid platform for a parked vehicle, continuing to the front door parallel with the fence and across the garden at a 45° angle to enable the client to access the rubbish bins (which will be housed in a new bin store). The bold dynamic shapes of the garden will be accentuated with a box hedge. Planting in the garden will be low maintenance and long flowering with plenty of seasonal interest.
