At over 14 metres wide but only 3 metres deep this is an unusually-shaped garden and it gets little sun to boot! Of paramount importance was breaking up the ‘corridor’ effect that was overpowering, while not making the separation of spaces feel contrived.
Our solution was to make the main bed raised and diagonally bisect the whole garden, with a path that meanders through it. We planted it up mostly with woodland plants from Crûg Farm Plants, and for a shady garden we’ve put in a lot of colour!
