A cottage garden

We designed a sort of 'Celtic cross' of plants and paving to give the cottage garden some desperately needed structure, with stone paths, a garden bench pyramids of roses on the wish list. To the other side of the house we made some large sleeper beds, to counteract the effect a slope, which had made the garden look as if it was falling out towards the road. Building the beds around existing trees gave them an instantly established look. The illustration shows a small detail from the concept plan.
