Tusmore garden

The design brief for this front garden was to get rid of the lawn, which had suffered greatly in the drought, and to replace it with something that would withstand the hot western sun to which it was subjected.

The design chosen sought to complement the wide and generous front of the house. The garden space contains both paving and mass planting, incorporating different colours and textures.

Mass planting of lavender along the front wall complements the style of the house and the two trees, one on each side of the front path, were selected for their decorative bark and flowers, in addition to their function of providing shade and privacy. Two wide pots, painted with Porters Paints to take on a rusted iron appearance, were planted with a variety of succulents, and sited atop informally placed stones.
