Project: The one week transformation
This garden was a totally virgin site in a new property in Wallsend, near Newcastle upon Tyne. The owner wanted a pretty but lowish maintenance garden, somewhere to sit and some grass.
Over the course of a week the garden was initially levelled then an edged curved lawn was laid. This was followed by the installation of a largish patio to the sunniest side for sitting and entertaining. Finally a mixed border was planted with a variety of suitable shrubs and grasses to keep the maintenance low but giving interest throughout the year. A gravel mulch on weed suppressant membrane was put around the plants which neatened the whole garden as well as reducing the maintenance still further.
