Drawn to the kinetic quality of grasses which move with the lightest of breezes, Keith has used a wide range extensively throughout the garden. For Keith repetition is key. By planting the grasses in mounds as they would naturally grow in an exposed sunny meadow, with perennials interwoven throughout, Keith has achieved a riot of colour and movement and endless eye-catching plant associations. The naturalistic rounded mounds are contrasted with dramatic effect by the vertical lines of the bright vivid spires of Kniphofia. The bright yellow and oranges of the Knifophias and Crocosmias compliment the blue swathes of the Agapanthus perfectly. While naturalistic, the planting is considered and intentional. As you stand immersed in the colour and textures and observe the well positioned terracotta pots you can evoke the warmer exotic climbs that provided the inspiration for this beautiful garden. This feature captures Keith and his Ros’s Wildside garden at its peak on a sunny summers day.
