E17 Victorian Front Garden

The Brief

To create a low maintenance front garden around a central Acer tree which provides privacy from the street and practical bin storage solution

 

The Solution

Privacy from the street is provided by mature Portugese Laurel hedging on all boundaries.  Low maintenance shade planting alongside the path includes Liriope, Luzula nivea and Orphiopogon grasses.

 

The beds are edged in red brick to complement the house exterior and terracotta tiled path and the central Acer dissectum 'Garnet' is surrounded by quartz gravel which is also used in the back garden.

 

A double wooden bin store provides practical bin storage and is painted grey to mirror the front door.
