Millfield Lane, Highgate

The client asked us to enliven the borders either side of the lawn in her garden.

The lawn and the borders were re-shaped with sweeping curves to add visual interest. The borders were also deepened to increase their potential. Plants were carefully chosen to suit the soil conditions, which varied considerably throughout the garden, and to provide a wealth of colour through their flowers and foliage. The retention of a number of mature shrubs and grasses avoided the ‘just planted’ look when our work was finished.
