Our New Garden
Thank you to all of those who voted. We are pleased to announce that garden planting design one is the winner! We cannot wait to see it in full bloom.
Planting design 1: Blocks of hedging and small trees
This is designed in response to concerns raised about the visibility of the waiting area from the road: Hedging, which could be beech (which has beautiful brown leaves in winter) or green. Multi stemmed small trees inside the hedging will serve the purpose of screening the waiting area from the road and also providing some shade in the summer months. The remaining planting will be shrubs approx. 2 meters high to further screen those sitting in the waiting area.
