Contemporary Garden – Cheltenham
During the initial site visit the clients mentioned they wanted to create a native garden in front of the knock down rebuild of their new home. There was no existing topsoil, only hard clay along with all the builder’s contamination to contend with.
For a while I had been wanting to use Corten steel so tentatively suggested we use this steel to create raised garden beds. The clients Immediately loved the idea, eliminating the need for huge soil remediation. The plants have all thrived in the raised beds providing a colourful display of Lomandra ‘Lime Tuft, Syzygium ‘Resilience’ Westringia ‘Grey Box’ Dianella ‘Little Jess’ Dianella ‘Cassa Blue’ Anigozanthos ‘Big Red’ Grevillea sp. Tristaniopsis ‘Luscious’, South African Leucadendrons and Leucospermums all happy in the same environment.
A modern garden in an area traditionally planted with Camellias and formal hedges.
