Front Gardens

Charlotte loves designing for front gardens, if you are lucky enough to have a front space, this is your chance to show off and impress the neighbours!

In this garden Charlotte ditched the shabby grass and replaced it with porous hoggin which will be seeded with erigeron.

Because this front garden is small, Charlotte kept it simple and elegant, to give the house curb appeal. She replaced the depressing, half-dead supermarket carpark shrubs planted by the developers, with stunning Lavandula Angustifolia 'Hidcote'. To soften the house, Charlotte picked up the colour of the lavender in the bay window beds with Verbena bonariensis, Campanula and Clematis Jackmanii, with a shock of hot pink from climbing rose 'Gertrude Jekyll'.

For winter interest, she planted Daphne Odora which will hopefully fill that space.

Finally, Charlotte added two simple benches, this garden has stunning views across the fields. The client loves sitting here watching the birds in the hedgerow opposite and chatting to passers-by.
