Long, narrow triangular garden, Chester
This garden presented a design challenge - not only was it long, narrow and triangular but the house and garden meet along the long side of the triangle making it harder to 'hide' the shape of the garden. Ideally, the house would sit along the shortest side of the triangle in order to maximise the width as much as possible.
With this constraint impossible to ignore, the design seeks to maximise the useable space (incorporating two seating areas), uses architectural planting to soften the form of the garden and angles to minimise the 'corridoral' feel of the path.
A simple planting palette was used, with key accent plants that will form the main character once they have established. The garden also needed to be relatively low maintenance. We look forward to re-visiting this garden in spring/summer 2020 once the plants have started to fill the beds.
