Stepping Lightly On Earth

Intersecting Hedge

 

This garden had tall Eucalyptus syncarpia glomulifera and Liquidambers shading out the turfed area. The soil had been compacted as it acted as an extension of the driveway! We decided to do away with the grass as it was also hard to mow between the trees.

To lead the eye from the driveway to the house entrance, two curved intersecting hedges with a pebbled dry ‘river’ joining them are stretched between two conical ‘Topiaries’.
