A contemporary garden has been created here, in keeping with the building. There are lots of grasses in the planting, wildflower meadows surround the house and there is a kitchen garden. A roof terrace with prairie planting is in the process of being built.

A Woodland Garden
Creating Wildflower Meadows
As we become more aware of the importance of our native wild habitats people are recreating them in their own gardens. Wild flower meadows and grasslands are a good way of doing this. Wild flowers, some of which have become endangered because of chemicals used in agriculture can be reintroduced. The insect life in these new wild habitats is incredible. Some of the species cultivated for this purpose include Rhinanthus minor YELLOW RATTLE (semi-parasitic plant that slows down the growth of grass to provide more space for wildflower species), Knautia arvensis FIELD SCABIOUS, Leucanthemum vulgare OX-EYE DAISY, Silene flos-cucli RAGGED ROBIN, Lotus corniculatus BIRDSFOOT TREFOIL, Silene vulgaris BLADDER CAMPION, Primula veris OWSLIP, Hypericum perforatum ST JOHN'S WORT among others.
Planting in Pots
Planting for shade, and planting for sun, using low maintenance plants for all year round interest.
