BERNARD HICKIE | GARDENS & LANDSCAPES
This 3 acre garden already had a hard landscape infrastructure, into which we planted mature instant hedging, both Yew and Box to create structure, backdrop and framing. Semi mature trees were also planted for both structure and presence. Portuguese Laurel screening trees to 6m were planted strategically to block views from neighbouring properties and clipped to a box shape while multi stem Portuguese Laurels were clipped to a dome shape and used to separate the car parking area from the existing garden pavilion.
Large perennial beds were created for summer flower and three separate Lavender walks were planted to border the network of existing paths around the gardens.
