    Contemporary town garden combining clever design with knowledgeable plantsmanship. A patio area is bordered by a formal raised pond. Pots of unusual and interesting succulents, alpines, species pelargoniums and other tender plants line the steps which lead up to the lawn and garden beyond. The borders contain mainly herbaceous perennials and grasses planted in imaginative groupings to create imposing and attractive plant associations. The planting has been conceived to provide interest and beauty throughout the year and reaches its peak in late summer. Behind a tall beech hedge the owner has managed to create a small but fruitful potager and there is a productive greenhouse where young plants are raised and tender species overwintered. The garden is packed with planting inspiration and with design ideas for small and medium-sized gardens.
