Balls in Boxes


After having completed the back garden we were asked back to sort out the front garden. The house is north facing so the front felt dark; the brief was to increase the feeling of light & create a more formal look that required little maintenance. The neighbours then asked if we could do their front garden so that the two continued to look like a pair.


By removing all the shrub, with the exception of the yew hedging we were able to create a blank canvas on which to put Buxus balls, these were raised in steel boxes, so creating some interesting shape & structure. The mass of Scottish pebbles then brought light into the area.
