2015 Garden 6 - Herne Bay
To unravel the best of its original features, this 1930’s deco house required a sympathetic garden design. The front garden is ‘on show’, although in time the port-wine magnolia hedge will create a little more privacy, supported by floriferous crab apples. With its simple, functional layout of split-level lawns, vegetable patch and flower beds, this sassy garden works well for a family of teenagers and parents who are keen gardeners with farming roots. (Spot the sheep trough!) Note the Italian Cypress and pleached Callery pear trees. Swathes of iris and foliage plants provide subjects for the owner’s love of ikebana.
