Oegstgeest – Beatrixlaan
The 15 m long raised pond is dominating this long, narrow backyard. Client had three requirements: plants and flowers to enjoy the change of the seasons, no large groups and no yellows. My approach was a natural planting using a matrix of grasses intermixed with perennials to create an airy lush planting to soften and support the rectangular shapes and directive lines of the garden. In winter the evergreen frame of Nandinas and Pittosporum tobira ‘Nana’ contrasts nicely with the yellow of the grasses and brown wilted seadheads. Garden is cut back each year in early spring, just in time for the large amount of bulbs to pop up and shine.
Pics are taken at the end of a wet august month. plants have grown very tall and flop over.
