Large family garden with warm & vibrant planting

This large informal garden was designed to bring more light into the garden. My clients wanted to open up the space so that they could get a better sense of the countryside beyond the end boundary.  

A long sweeping lawn gives plenty of space for the children to play alongside some more sophisticated adult space for relaxation and entertaining closer to the house. 

Spring bulbs give way to tall perennial planting giving colour and texture throughout the summer.  The box balls, grasses and perennial seed heads give structure during winter.
