This garden was given a total makeover.
The request was to divide the long garden into 3 distinct areas.
1: A large patio
This was created with Bradstone Old Riven paving stones, in 3 sizes and colours.
Bordered with Charcoal block pavers. All joints were pointed by hand. A pergola was
built above half of the patio, so some shade could be cast by climbing plants.
2: A Meadow
We looked into growing a meadow from seed. This would have been a very slow process,
taking up to 2 years to become established. After some research I found a product
called Meadow Mat.
Meadow mat is a speciality turf, it contains around 35 species of wild flowers and
grasses, all commonly found in established meadows. I have to admit it did look like
very weedy turf, after all that’s what it is.
3: Veggie Plots
Four vegetable plots were made with moisture resistant timber surrounds. The soil
was improved by adding compost and grit sand. This part of the garden is partly screened
off with a wire frame carrying trained fruit trees.
