Semi-formal Gravel Planting Scheme

Softening and cooling a smart front drive border.

Client’s driveway from road on right.

My client lives in a smart new block that is just a bit bare. I wanted to soften the gravel and driveway and the the same time use planting to complement the ornamental spheres.

Planting (from house) includes: Hydrangea ‘Incrediball’, Lavandula ‘Hidcote’, three different varieties of Juniperus (for differing shades of evergreen blue/ green), Pieris japonica, Lonicera nitida, Nandina domestica and Contoneaster Horizontalis. All plants are from Coblands Plant Centre, except the Pieris and Nandina which are from Croxted Road Garden Centre.

Have tools, will travel!
