Coastal garden design in St Andrews, Fife
These clients were in the process of renovating and upgrading a lovely house which was surrounded on all sides by a large garden. For their front garden they wanted to create a low maintenance flowering shrub and ornamental grass border that included spring bulbs around a 5m circular pond. Living in St. Andrew’s and therefore near to the coast, the plants would have to cope with salt laden winds but would also need to fit into a garden which had a woodland feel to it. The border was to act as a visual screen with plants nearest the road to grow to around 2 metres in height.
Plants used in this design:
Azalea ‘Geisha Purple’
Ceanothus ‘Blue Mound’
Phormium ‘Evening Glow’
