Lawrie and Simon spend far too much time in their own
garden, which acts both as a nursery for our regular customers and as a place
where we try out ideas. Plantings, Water features, Cut flowers and Winter
use mulch to contain our weeds and our moisture in all our gardens. Each garden
is developed with a general theme, such as "Fall colour", Wedding walk",
"mystery path" and "Explosion"
Water Features Water in a garden is truly
magical. It starts as a distant sound of trickling which draws you closer. The
reflection of leaf, petal and rock on water both welcome and soothe.
Cut Flowers There's nothing like having ones
own cut flower garden. One row of wildflowers and another of Zinnias ensure
summer-long colour indoors and out
Winters Song When planning a garden, it's
important to pick varieties such as the viburnam shown here to provide interest
during the long winter months. Several local species such as Sedum and dogwood
will stick up through the winter snows
