Even the smallest space can be green and inviting, while providing room for a car or two. These simple design solutions show you how.
Front gardens help turn our towns and cities into green and pleasant places to be. Yet many are being paved over to provide parking for the millions of cars we own in Great Britain. RHS research found that almost a quarter of the front gardens are now completely paved.

For more information on what and how to plant front gardens, see our guide: Front gardens: planting.
