The Brief

A new build house required a planting scheme to soften the house into its surrounding country setting.

My design

More formal box hedging and balls were planted close to the house to give the glass porch more privacy and to add winter interest.
Large specimen multistem malus Evereste were used at the entrance and exit of the garden’s boundaries and these ornamental crab apples are a great addition to any garden as they attract wildlife. Fruit espalier trees line the boundary wall and produce a good harvest of pears and apples for the clients.
