A previously neglected and unutilised front garden was completely re-landscaped to create a formal, decorative frontage to a substantial Clifton residence.
Slightly elevated from street level with no housing opposite, the garden enjoys a rare feeling of privacy and seclusion for its city centre location. A generous entrance, framed by a purposed designed arch leads to the destination point of a garden bench via a meandering journey through the garden.
Planted with a combination of evergreen and aromatic plants, interspersed with spring and summer bulbs, the colour palette is cool and fresh. Curved and linear hedges of Pittosporum white Camellias and lavender define and enclosed the planting areas which will mature to form dense undulating mounds of texture and colour. The absence of a lawn limits maintenance to a biannual trim with pleasurable garden pottering in between!
“A scruffy, overgrown and neglected area was transformed by Terrey and Conrad at Outer Space into a beautifully designed front garden, providing a serene and aromatic area to sit in the sun, enjoy its lovely plants and watch the bees and butterflies they attract. A carefully planned planting scheme means that throughout the year there is always a sense of anticipation and something looking its best. We have lost count of the number of people who have stopped to admire it and, whether viewing it from the house or from the pavement, our front garden brings us great pleasure…we couldn’t be more thrilled and delighted!”
