It is always a brief that requires a careful, well thought out response, an enthusiastic gardener that is also a passionate dog owner. A hardy lawn was required, with robust planting that can withstand constant wear & tear that is inherent with a large dog. The use of herbaceous perennials ensures minimum structural branching that can be damaged, & ensures a quick rate of regrowth. A strong sense of structure is still attained in the garden by use of built form, & advanced tree stock was used, suitably staked during establishment. The end result is a garden that goes a long way to meeting the expectations of both dog & owner!
