A winning garden in Shaftesbury

A lucky couple in Shaftesbury won a free £6000 garden makeover from Castle Gardens (garden centre, Sherborne) earlier this year.  I was commissioned to redesign the front garden which I helped plant up today. 

The front garden to this 1930’s brick house was dominated by a tidy lawn however the borders were very overgrown and the drive did not allow for the easy manoevering of vehicles.   I slightly modified the  layout of the front garden  in order to accommodate more space for parking and turning cars.  Plants were saved from the original beds and reused in part however the new borders are planted to create year round colour including shrub and standard roses (these are due to be planted late November).

The garden work was carried out by the landscape team at Castle Gardens.
