Winter Colour for an Everyday Garden
We were asked to design and plant this everyday suburban garden and its completed the brief very nicely.
Bird attracting, colour throughout the year (especially through the winter months) straightforward maintenance by the owners and mainly native plantings.
We've used plantings including Westringia and Myoporum together with Cercis, Lagerstromia, Kniphofia and Sedums. Its softened the exisiting driveway and the house and already begun to create a barrier between the street and the house.
Its not just the colour but the combination of plant shapes, sizes and textures that soften the existing hard surfaces.
Everyday gardens don't have to be wastelands of grass, artificial turf or gravel. No front fence required.
Below are the 'before' photographs for the grass frontage.
