Modern Country Garden Combos: Lavender And Topiary

As I shared in the last post, we're currently completely renovating our garden, so I'm all about outside spaces at the moment.  I thought we'd have a chat about favourite Modern Country Garden planting combos....

Lavender and Bay Trees in Modern Country Front Garden

Let's start off with topiary and lavender.

Clockwise from top: this aged brick house is set off beautifully by dusky grey paint on the doors and frames, allowing the drainpipe and rendered base to fade into the overall scheme...white hydrangeas and lavender, contrasted against smart clipped box, keep this home looking firmly Modern Country....for full details click through to Modern Country Style blog: Modern Country Garden Combos: Lavender And Topiary

Clockwise from top: this aged brick house is set off beautifully by dusky grey paint on the doors and frames, allowing the drainpipe and rendered base to fade into the overall scheme; box topiary in a zinc planter, box balls sit perfectly alongside a whole range of different architectural styles; Colours to try alongside this look include Dulux White, Farrow and Ball Cabbage White, Farrow and Ball Calluna, Little Greene French Grey, well thought-out details inside tie your interior and exterior together with aplomb.....

Whether you prefer yew, or boxwood, or photinias or hollies.....topiary and lavender go together like clotted cream and jam in a freshly baked scone. Utter Modern Country Garden perfection!

Try Little Greene Juniper Ash, Zoffany Sung Mauve, Fired Earth Sea Lavender, Fired Earth Gentian Violet; a beautiful Modern Country planting scheme with four clipped box hedges enclosing swathes of lavender, and boxwood balls nestled within....Full details over on Modern Country Style blog: Modern Country Garden Combos: Lavender And Topiary

My personal favourites for topiary are box balls, or low boxwood hedges...

Well, the lavender provides that perfect Country softness, while the topiary gives a perfect formal framework which gives a more contemporary feel.

I am absolutely loving planning our Modern Country garden - it gets me through the ridiculous amount of digging out that needs to be done. Who needs a gym when you have a garden reno?!

consider a country-inspired feminine palette of Farrow and Ball Pelt, Dulux Linnet, Farrow and Ball Purbeck Stone, Farrow and Ball Cinder Rose. Full details on Modern Country Style blog: Modern Country Garden Combos: Lavender And Topiary

Consider a country-inspired feminine palette of Farrow and Ball Pelt, Dulux Linnet, Farrow and Ball Purbeck Stone, Farrow and Ball Cinder Rose; lavenders look gorgeous on paintwork alongside plenty of green planting, a circular pond wrapped with low box hedging is set off with a ribbon of lavender plants; topiary balls in old pots

Oh, and did I say I've just joined Instagram....come and follow me as I try to find my feet in this new Social MEdia playground.....



Take Care Until Next Time,

Because of Box Blight desease and Box Caterpillar, Box must have very good air circulation so no crowded planting with lavender. Also consider what you put into the middle of a Box square. Give them room to breath!

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com website: Https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
