The client didn’t want any lawn so a sweeping path runs from the kitchen door through swathes of herbaceous planting to the centrepiece of the potager, a decagonal cedar greenhouse. Four raised beds fan out around the greenhouse. At the far end of the garden a fence screens an area for compost bins and a water tank. Espalier apple trees are trained against the fence with a bench between to give a pleasant place to rest after all that gardening!
