The Edible Roundabout

At the intersection of Leys Road and Highworth Avenue is a small, enclosed circular space whose previous landscaping had grown a little wild. We were offered the opportunity to give the space a makeover by the city council and gladly took it. For this space we opted for a circular design to match the overall shape of the space, using rings of strawberries and chives, as well as relocating the existing sage and lavender plants into more of a cluster in the middle around an ornamental plant. You can’t tell from the late spring photos above, but there are numerous tulips that we rearranged in a circular manner around the space as well, for that bright splash of colour as soon as the winter is over.
