My Turfed Out show garden at Hampton Court was a garden model for new build homes and during the show at Hampton Court I was commissioned to recreate Turfed Out in Its entirety in a new-build home in West Sussex.
The clients are a retired couple who were looking for a sustainable low maintenance solution to replace an expansive lawn. They also wanted to increase bio-diversity and attract more wildlife into their garden.
The garden also has an amazing view and the clients did not want the view obscured too much as deer visit the field and they enjoy watching them from their living room so the planting in front of the fence had to be see through.
I used the same plants as my show garden and I planted small as this means the plants will require less watering but also encourages stronger roots which will require minimal watering once established. In time the plants will knit together and create different paths throughout.
