The ambition here was to create a stunning planting scheme that would liven up a dull leyandii hedge that was sparse and ugly at the base. Using a range of shrubs and grasses a sinuous scheme was developed with a spine of fresh Griselinia hedge and fronted and punctuated with hebes, pinus mugo, heathers, phormiums and grasses.

In this wild garden a tree house was created amongst a wild style garden full of grasses large and large leaved plants that give the garden an exotic feel. The tree house was constructed with natural, predominately untreated and unplaned, locally sourced douglas fir and larch that allow the tree house to nestle into its natural surroundings.
