Classic alpine rockery
The elderly owner of this garden was a true plantsman and had a wonderful plant selection, both ornamental and vegetable. He wanted a prettier view from within the house for his disabled wife as well as less work, and the brief was to provide a true alpine rockery and a low-maintenance planting plan for another large bed close to the house. I suggested incorporating a seat into a new rockery with easy and direct access from the house, so that the sunny site could be enjoyed by the couple right outside their back door.
