Inner-city gardens, Sheffield, UK
These gardens have now reached elegant maturity. They emphasise rich and diverse planting and utilise sunlit areas for lawns and sitting spots floating in flowery and bee friendly perennial planting. Approaches to the front doors have been transformed from uninspiring 'rockery' and yards into elegant courtyards and colourful herbaceous meadows. Maintenance is relaxed and provides soft edges and a natural feel to the spaces.
