Contemporary garden planting
Last year we designed this contemporary garden in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, and installed half of the planting. This week, after what seemed like an eternity waiting for spring to arrive, we completed the other half.
We’ve planted 150 tulips in cream, pink and a deep plum colour, to complement Heuchera ‘Blackberry Jam’, and 50 Alliums in a cerise/purple. The rest of the planting design is centred on the strong architectural shapes of Phormium, Acer and Miscanthus, which create dynamic lines against the white rendered walls, especially at night with the integral spotlighting.
