Pleached Trees Provide Privacy

What: A Garden With Improved Privacy

Where: Harborne

When: November 2012

An old Victorian property with a large back garden


Client Brief - a very large conifer had been removed which meant that a neighbour's window directly overlooked our client's garden.  Screening was essential.


G-Scapes planted a series of 10'-12' pleached photinia trees. These were set in raised sleeper planters to give extra height, with trellis below.  The correct positioning of this screen was vital to give the client sufficient privacy to be able to sit in and enjoy their garden.

The patio was extended using old re-claimed Imperial blue bricks to match existing paved area.

The choice of an original millstone to form a bubble water feature was in keeping with the style and age of the property.
