Prarie-Style Planting Design

Inspired by a visit to a local garden the client requested a full prairie style planting design with height and texture to bring form and structure around the generous existing decking.

Grasses and perennial planting bring year round interest whilst the sawn sandstone plank paving creates not only an access through the planting but an opportunity to become immersed in the colours and textures. 

Project Year: 2017

Project Cost: £5,001 - £7,500

Country: United Kingdom

 Sweeping beds wrapping around the decking, height in the planting allows the beds to be enjoyed form inside or outside.

 Striking colours contrast through the beds whilst grasses bring texture and movement. Clouds of Verbena flowers add height in late season.

 The mix of planting provides the prarie-style that the client had loved so much.  A riot of colour and texture that looks absolutely incredible.
