Ornamental kitchen garden

Colchester, Essex

Clients’ brief
“We’d like to grow some veg in our garden, but we don’t want an allotment. Can you create a kitchen garden design that is ornamental?”

Kitchen garden design tip

To create either a stylish veg plot that is on full view, or a pretty ornamental kitchen garden, you have to look to the classic four-quartered formal gardens of the East. These gardens use a simple four-bed pattern that also works well for crop rotation.

Clients’ review
“Thank you so much for all your help and guidance with our garden design, you’ve really inspired us…”
