190 Barnet Road

Barnet

Garden designer’s walled garden, approx 90ft x 36ft. Modern, asymmetric design thickly planted in flowing, natural drifts around trees, shrubs and central pond; changing array of interesting containers, recycled objects and sculptures. Copper trellis divides the space into contrasting areas. The garden continues to evolve as planted areas are expanded. We now have a tin can sculpture garden.

    190 Barnet Road is a thickly planted, walled garden . The design is modern and asymmetric, using naturalistic, flowing plantings around trees, shrubs and pond, with a changing array of containers, recycled objects and sculptures. Hand beaten copper trellis divides the garden.
    Four white barked Betula jacquemontii dominate the central area, under-planted with predominantly white herbaceous plantings including swathes of sweet rocket (Hesperis matronalis), Astrantia major 'White Giant', oxeye daisy 'Shaggy' and the silver grass, Phalaris ‘Feesey’. Moving round, the colour palette changes to a deep pink/purple mix including Geraniums ‘Patricia’ and ‘Ann Folkard’ planted around Sambucus ‘Black Lace’. Throughout the garden there are bulbs planted through herbaceous plants to increase the diversity and intensity of the mix and to extend the season of interest.
    There is a kitchen garden with soft fruit, vegetables and a compost heap which is the main source of nutrients for the garden.
    A central pond helps to attract Insect and bird life.
    We recently removed an area of lawn to create a gravel garden.
    Now we are completely lawn free and the proud owners of a new tin can garden.
    Many of the plants from the garden are propagated and are for sale, including many unusual herbaceous perennials.
