art lovers garden

This garden is 80cm lower than the house, so requires a slope for wheelchair access to each area of the garden. The clients wanted a low maintenance garden in which to display several pieces of art. The soil is slightly alkaline, sandy loam.

 

Requirements for the new garden design/landscape architecture:

 

  • A main patio adjacent to the house with wheelchair access from one of the rooms

  • Storage areas under the main patio

  • Retention of an Adobe Wall

  • Screening from the bedroom of the house beyond the south corner

  • An accessible dining area in the east corner of the garden

  • A shady seating area in the south corner of the garden which should also house a dinosaur’s footprint

  • No lawn

  • Rain water storage under the main patio with hosepipes connected for watering the garden All areas must be permeable

  • No green plants

 

This garden was constructed by Greenhaven Landscapes from Blandford.
