Berkshire – Front Garden Design & Planting Plan

A front garden providing parking and access to the garage and main door.

The client wanted a front garden with a ‘contemporary country’ feel. A semi-detached property, he wanted increased privacy, planting and parking. Existing trees and the hedging to the front border were to remain.


Horizontal fencing panels were used on the dividing boundary, topped with a row of pleached Hornbeam trees and underplanted with shrubs and bulbs to add privacy. This planting was repeated on the opposite side of the garden, giving a contemporary feel to the area. A small native hedge was added here to give further privacy without reducing access.  A border added in front of the existing hedge increases growing space, whilst the existing gravel parking area was enlarged, replacing the lawn, to provide extra parking. Lavender-edged borders were added on either side of the front porch. Using the same planting combinations of Roses, Jasmin, and Salvias to give a colourful ‘country’ feel.

Project Type: Contemporary, Contemporary Country, Front Garden


Pam took time to understand what we wanted from our garden and how we planned to use it, listening to our tastes, and guiding us along the way. The restrictions from lockdown did not prevent Pam from producing a fantastic garden design that we are really pleased with and look forward to enjoying for many years to come.
