A Woodland Walk In Suburbia
The opportunity was to connect the relatively small backyard to the front of the house by creating a ‘woodland walk’. This was achieved by clearing all the undergrowth, many of the less established trees and then carefully grading to create a meandering pathway.
Several evergreens we brought in on the perimeter to help give the walk a greater sense of privacy. In addition, flowering woodland shrubs and trees were added for spring /summer interest, along with masses of clumped bulbs; daffodils, bluebells grape hyacinths and wild tulips. The result is unique sense of woodland tranquility deep in suburbia that is perfect for a morning walk with a cup of coffee, or an evening stroll with a glass of wine.
