A hillside garden with naturalistic and sustainable planting

Cradled in the folds of an undulating landscape, the romantic and sustainable hillside planting of this beautiful garden was inspired by the untamed wild beyond the garden’s shelter-belt of beech hedging and mature trees.

The planting includes mounds and drifts of perennial flowers, grasses and shrubs in heightened tones of nature’s more muted palette. This naturalistic planting design replaced the previously unimaginative slope of unmown grass, and illustrates the possibilities of sloping garden ideas.
