This small garden exemplifies the value of good design, soil remediation and plant choice. It is a small space but the tiny lawn and hedge still required paid maintenance teams. The existing plants were stunted and diseased. The cottage garden we installed can be maintained by the owner. She trusted that removing the lawn, adding a winding path leading to a pretty garden seat and a vine covered pergola wouldn’t overwhelm the space. These design techniques actually make a small space look bigger. In just a few months this garden was lush and abundant!
