The garden really began to take shape today, with hedges completed and the beds prepared for planting. The wildflower turf was laid in most of the beds, and it is proving to be a wonderful complement to the surrounding planting. The day was occupied mostly with setting out the plants into their (somewhat) final composition, and with much shifting and adjusting, and the very helpful perspectives of the whole team, we managed to achieve a layout we were happy with!
We’ve created a beautiful juxtaposition between the controlled layout of the perennials and the relaxed and more randomly scattered planting matrix existing in the meadow. The colour scheme is also proving to be a brilliant contrast/complement situation. The meadow contains a fair amount of yellow, while the perennial planting is more subdued palette of lavenders, blues and pinks, with green foliage to offset the tones in the planting.
