Contemporary Plant Borders

This contemporary plant  border was designed to compliment a total house refurbishment.  

Facing south it receives plenty of sunshine providing an opportunity to plant a selection of drought tolerant mediterranean type plants such as Cistus, Agapanthus, Palms, Euphorbias and herbs. 

The choice of plants have been selected to compliment the grey and silver tones of the house exterior.

Deck construction and border preparation

Astelia, agapanthus, verbena and geraniums.

Evergreen Cistus are planted to fill the void under the deck and soften the hard lines of timberwork.

Euphorbia brings bright fresh green to the garden in Spring and early Summer.

Palms, verbena, agapanthus and phormium provide structure and height to the planting scheme.

The soft grey render on the house provides a backdrop to display the shapes and textures of the planting.
