A Coastal Clay Garden


This garden is an L-shaped garden on a slope with alkaline, clay soil under 20-30cm of topsoil.  It has a view across the marshes to Weymouth bay, and is south facing.  The clients wanted a low maintenance garden that they could sit in an enjoy the view.  


Requirements for the new garden design/landscape architecture:   


  • A small patio
  • A small arbour
  • A water feature
  • Yellow and purple planting
  • Screening from the houses across the road to create a private space
  • No steps


This garden has been constructed by Gregorys Landscaping of Piddlehinton, and the plants have been sourced from Chichester Trees and Shrubs.


Here are the Outline Plan and some photographs:
