Creating a low maintenance solution for a dry front pavement border…….

The existing south-facing pavement area was difficult to mow and keep weed-free, as well as being very shallow. So we lifted the turf, planted through membrane, and topped with Dorset flint gravel and caledonian boulders.

The planting scheme was kept simple with only 4 plant varieties – flowering thymes, sea thrift (Armeria maritima), sedums and houseleeks (sempervivum) from Rainbow Plants. Nice.
