A Place To Meet Again

Lifestyle Gardens

In more detail

  • A multi-stemmed silver birch tree creates shade for under plantings of hostas, Alchemilla mollis, astrantias and heucheras, creating a beautiful tapestry of texture
  • An undulating planting scheme basking in the sun features white agapanthus towering above achilleas, Erigeron karvinskianus, feathery gaura with blocks of Hydrangea paniculata – a superb combination to try at home

About the garden

APL’s A Place to Meet Again focuses on upcycling and repurposing materials in order to reduce landfill and challenge innovation. Upcycling furniture has become a trend, but what can be upcycled in a garden? Scaffold boards are repurposed as a board walk, gin bar and pergola. A large plastic water harvesting tank has been put to creative reuse both as seating and as part of a water feature incorporating repurposed brass taps. The aim is to show that a lot can be achieved with little. The planting in tones of green and white is readily available at local garden centres.
