A challenging front garden set on a slope

For this sloping front garden, our design team created this beautiful circular gravel driveway with a perimeter of granite setts. The challenge of the slope was addressed by a ramp and steps in buff porcelain stone. To play with the differences of level, the gravel circle is underset by a buxus hedge, and the effect is amplified with beautiful curved raised beds that surround the space. Eye-catching planting offers lovely shades of plum and purples through the seasons with Agapanthus, Allium and Acer trees.

We also enabled our clients to conceal their bins inside a smart bespoke cedar bin park. Its roof is planted with a carpet of sempervivums which creates a distinctive evergreen piece in itself.
