A multi-textured driveway conversion on a slope
We laid a fine Victorian-style tiled path lined with Ilex crenata to lead to the entrance of this period house, and converted the main area of the front garden into an attractive and user-friendly driveway. To create interest, the dark grey porcelain slabs alternate with lighter grey sandstone setts, which also define the planted area, the curved shape of which is farther accentuated by five Eriobotrya half standard trees along its perimeter. The mainly evergreen planting creates a subtle palette of dark plum, white and silver tones.
Finally, we incorporated our signature cedar trellis bike shed for the use of the family, with a sempervivum green roof.
