Project 7: Edinburgh front garden

Before and after images to the garden. Please click on to enlarge.

The garden had fallen into neglect. The brief was to create a space to sit in & enjoy the flowers, as well as the discreet accommodation of 5 bins which needed to be kept in the front garden.

The grass was removed and replaced with paving, providing a comfortable place to sit. Planting beds enclose the seating area and are filled with small shrubs and herbaceous perennials to create year long colour & interest.
The 5 bins were accommodated along the path towards the front door. A planting bed situated in the middle interrupted the line of bins. An attractive specimen tree was planted here, underplanted with small shrubs.
