Introduce key planting areas
When creating different garden zones, planting is an important feature that can help define the boundaries and structure to the design, as well as being a decorative feature. In our project ever green Buxus create a sculpted, contemporary feel to form a boundary around the feature olive tree. In addition, paving is complemented with perimeter planting of grasses and lavender to bring colour, scent and additional interest to the paving areas, as well as creating a barrier around the tops of walls.
Strategically positioned pots allow sculptural planting such as bay trees to be used to act as ornamental decorative features that also help to break up the hard surfaces and add depth to the overall feel of the planting arrangement. A cluster of well-positioned potted plants surrounding a seating area is also a great way to make the experience of sitting outdoors feel more immersive.
