Piet Oudolf is the master of soft textured block planting. Love the tonal blend through the flower heads and into the grasses - an edited meadowscape.Our house is very square and very black. I need the landscape to soften up all the hard lines but still deliver colour, texture and drama.
I have the main structure, a backdrop of lilly pilly hedge, a row of gorgeous pear trees for height, seasonal colour and privacy. I want the beds under the plum trees to be fat with grassy textures, with wild looking flowers adding seasonal colour.
I need to bring the garden close to the house and blur the edges.
