Our client had recently moved in to a large new house, and wanted to remove the dull landscaping which had been planted.

We were asked to use white flowering plants only, include planters by the door, Roses and topiary.

Our design included clipped Buxus balls with standard Iceberg Roses and Laurus Nobilis (Bay) cones. A bank with poor soil was planted with soft evergreen grass for movement and interplanted with robust perennials which would be happy with the challenging position.

We started by removing the existing plants and a skip of rubble left in the borders was replaced with top soil and compost.

Oxford Planters made and supplied the planters - and these were planted up with standard white Camellias and Skimmer 'Kew Green'.

A succession of white flowering bulbs were planted later in the year to extend the season of interest into Spring.
