downsizing your garden – telegraph article


An interesting piece in the telegraph on Sunday by Caroline Donald @pacets@telegardening about ‘how to downsize your garden for less stress and just as much pleasure’ featuring a garden I designed a few years ago for a great gardener @carolynfrench57 who wanted a wild colourful but easy to maintain garden in their new downsized house/garden. https://www.catherineclancy.com/garden-portfolio/town-gardens-and-courtyards/blackheath-flower-garden/ Ced quartz paddlestones https://www.cedstone.co.uk/landscape/product-range/yellow-paddlestones were used to create ‘drystone’ walls and crazy paving. Contrasting @chelmervalleypavers https://www.chelmervalley.co.uk/clay-brick-pavers/old-english-brick-pavers/used to create the paths.
