Portfolio: Island Bed

Design & Planting in West Wiltshire

This island bed is situated in a formal garden in Wiltshire.  It was very run down following many years of neglect.  The owner’s estate team refurbished the stonework. The brief was to design on one side a planting to work with the formal aspect of the garden however the other side had to work with the garden moving into the wider estate and a russet type of planting was required to enhance the late summer views from the estate and draw the walker into the formal area.
