Redesign of cottage garden, Tisbury, Wiltshire

The brief was to redesign the whole garden to make it more streamline and lower maintenance.  The central oval border in the front border was completely redesigned to create a summer flowering bee-friendly border planted with hardy geraniums, scabiosas, phlox, astrantias, asters and aquilegias, the existing narrow border by the path was removed, the whole area re-turfed and the gravel path edged with stone to define the border.

A  small patio was designed for the back garden to catch the sun and the view and edged with a low lavender hedge.  The narrow rose border was removed and the roses re-planted in the side border which was under planted with white cistus, nepeta and edged with hardy geraniums. The rest of the garden was re-turfed.
