Oriental Garden
This pretty old house in a Shropshire town was in need of an identity so an informal ‘East meets West’ theme was implemented. It is a long & narrow plot so it was divided up into different zones, the first part becoming more ‘West ‘ in inspiration with scented herbaceous perennials, roses, and flowering shrubs and climbers.

The far end of the garden had a more defined ‘Eastern ‘ feel with a Japanese inspired bamboo archway leading into the oriental second section where a hexagonal timber gazebo was built as a garden room. This area also had a gravel garden with lots of bamboos, quince, anemones & a large juniper tree was beginning to be shaped in a ‘cloud pruned ‘ manner to further enhance the oriental feel.

Careful use of garden accessories further brought the scheme together by using Japanese stone lanterns, water feature, and glazed pots with collections of hostas.
