A Small Gravel Garden


Dispensing with the lawn in this small sunny garden allowed for the placing of a large curving area of planting wrapped around a gravelled space for pots of herbs. The existing terrace of concrete slabs was extended and resurfaced in limestone, with a small secondary seating area for a café table at the end of the garden. Space has been found for raised beds, ideal for herbs and a few salads and tomatoes in summer. While the curved yew hedge is growing, the structure of the posts gives a partial division of the garden to isolate a utility space towards the rear.
