Victorian town house garden in a conservation area

 … have been busy working on some new design projects, here is one of them, a long thin garden in the ashburnham conservation area.  A new extenstion will be added to the house, and the garden will be landscaped at the same time.  The design disguises the long thin shape of the  plot, and provides a secluded seating area in the sunny corner at the end of the garden.  This garden will be a little green oasis, tranquil and a great sanctuary for it’s owners. See some of our other small gardens http://www.catherineclancy.com/projects.php
Here are 2 photos of what the garden looks like now, before work starts on the garden and the extension

I visited the walled garden at Scampston North yorkshire at the weekend, and its worth a visit if you are ever in the area.  The silent garden and the grass garden were the most peaceful enclosed spaces that i have been in for a while. Beautiful inspired planting. This is a photo from the webiste.


Are these weeds or wildflowers?

Its a fact… weeds are in… evident in some of the gardens at chelsea flower show in May this year… what is one mans weed is another wild flower or garden flower…
