Prairie Planting

A project for Planting Design, the client looked out onto an uninspiring, rough grassed, steep slope and wanted to look out at a sea of colour and see the changes of season. As the slope was extremely steep, it did not make for easy regular gardening. The solution to this was to create a matrix of prairie style planting which, once established can largely look after its self, designed to look fabulous from the spring bulbs, the colourful herbaceous flowers lasting until the first frosts, the skeletons and evergreens maintaining the interest throughout the winter. A false set of steps through the centre of the planting give the impression of a garden beyond the trees.
