New Borders Flourish at Monkton Combe School

Patrick Swan has recently completed the design and planting of new flower borders at the renowned Monkton Combe school, near Bath, as part of ongoing improvements to the landscaping there.

The grounds around this independant school, set amongst the stunning Somerset scenery, are set for a £1.5m shake up as part of wider developments and improvments to the educational facilites there.

Patrick has been been called in to redesign two high profile borders adjcent to the main quadrangle as well as advise on improvements elsewhere. " The challenge was to create a stimulating design, with all year round interest for an important part of the school, but also one that could withstand the rigours of school life and not be a maintenance headache" Patrick said.

Patrick also advises the Bursary and grounds staff on the maintenance and development of the landscape at Monkton Combe.
