Project 5 - Gravel garden
Project 4
Gravel gardens are well suited to the climate of SW France, and particularly interesting for the holiday and second home owners as they require minimal maintenance. We have installed gravel gardens both with and without irrigation, both with fantastic results. We try to choose drought tolerant plants and it is our intention where possible to eliminate irrigation altogether which has the benefit of being both sustainable and cost effective.

At the start a good volume of manure is incorporated into the bare earth and that is then covered with landscape cloth. The plants are then inserted through the landscape cloth and finally the gravel is spread around the plants to give the final look.

To give you a taste of the plants we have used we have planted banana, Jerusalem sage, bronze Fennel, Canna lillies, Perovskia 'blue spire', Guara, sedum, and Lavender. These plants are designed to fill out in subsequent years and give the garden a full and colourful finish.
