A Coastal Retreat

We designed a garden for West Cumbria, using a coastal planting scheme and featuring a magnificent piece of slate donated by the late Mark Weir of Honister Slate Mine.

 

Our landscaping partners for the show was Nigel Walker Paving Ltd. His team, Neal, Mark, Ted and Ben reproduced the design extremely well, resulting in impressive comments from the judges.

 

The design of interlocking paving circles, enhanced by a pebble inlay, gently curved raised beds and the complementary Honister water feature was very well received by the crowds at the show.

 

Carol Klein said she loved the planting combinations. The planting scheme combined grasses and perennials and shrubs in subtle shades of silver purple and blue.
