Synopsis
Designers Nick Gough and Douglas Vieira used block paving with red brick edging to give a rich, warm traditional look. This was also used on the path to the side gate, but "we added extra interest to this path by laying the brick sets at one meter intervals across the path". There are two circular brick beds within the garden, the larger being to the right of the front gate, with the smaller being at the top of the path nearest to the house. The circular theme is completed within both beds with the planting of large Taxus baccata topiary balls at their centres. Bin storage is always a consideration in a front garden and in this design, the bin store is painted the same colour as the railings to give a sense of harmony. As with many designs, low maintenance was key. This garden has an integrated watering system that ensures no additional manual watering is needed throughout the growing season.
