Low Maintenance Patio Garden

Beautiful light beige sandstone and an area of artificial grass make this low maintenance patio garden feel more spacious. The small borders have plants that will climb up the boundaries to make it feel as green as possible. The square grey planters complete the neutral colour scheme.

Patio Garden – Stroud Green

Patio garden with small wisteria and painted sheds

This little family garden in Stroud Green was cluttered and overgrown. The simple new design uses soft grey and light beige  as a backdrop to purple and white planting. The fences and two little sheds are painted in grey and provide much needed storage.  A toy box doubles as a seat in the garden.  There is now room in this patio garden for dining and for play.




Plants for Patio Garden

Grey planters with lavenders and alliums

Lavender, alliums and climbing roses in planters

Even though the space is small, the square grey planters are large enough for white climbing roses, lavender and purple alliums.  On the shadier side, the planters contain hydrangeas with large white flower balls and purple clematis.  A small wisteria, will be trained like a tree to keep it neat. A climbing hydrangea and a white passion flower will also clothe the fences.





Paving for Patio Garden

Beige sandstone patio and step

The beige sandstone for the paving and step is very smooth. It is sealed and laid to a gentle fall to avoid water collecting.  The paving size is large to increase the feeling of space. Beige pebbles in the plant borders complete this low maintenance patio garden.
