Gaynor and I came up with the design ideas together. I removed all the plants in the front garden except the wisteria and clematis climbing up the house. We then created a new driveway using granite slabs with alternating tones. New low brick walls and flower beds were next. Followed by minimalist styling and use of evergreen plants. Six years later it looks wonderfully mature. I also added a twelve foot lolli-popped privot for a street tree, underplanted with box as well (private road).
