Portfolio - The Overlooked Garden

Mr & Mrs J
Boxford, Suffolk

This small front garden needed to accommodate a storage shed, a driveway and a patio for entertaining and was very overlooked on all sides.

The Brief

The garden had an assortment of overgrown deciduous shrubs on two boundaries and was overlooked on the third boundary by the local church. The clients wanted to replace the deciduous shrubs with attractive evergreens and wanted some privacy from the adjacent churchyard. The driveway needed to take up less space and a storage shed needed to be fitted in somewhere.

The Garden

The deciduous shrubs were removed and replaced with 2m rootballed Portuguese laurels (Prunus lusitanica) as a hedge on two boundaries. Pleached Portuguese laurels were planted next to the low church wall as a privacy screen. A corner shed was chosen since it made best use of the available space and the drive was shortened, leaving room for a brick paver path leading to the front door with a border on either side.
