Creating two levels of hedging by underplanting the raised hedge is a nice twist on the stilted hedge that has become popular with garden designers in recent years.    Here we see a formal low-clipped boxwood hedge under the raised hedge of Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'. Both are evergreen, creating great year-round interest.

Le Haut, Guernsey  The garden surrounds a refurbished and extended traditional granite house, set among a network of high-banked lanes. The new design keeps the garden inward looking to provide shelter but with glimpses out at key points to link with the surrounding landscape. Terraces and seating spaces are linked by weathered stone paths through granite retaining walls and planted banks. Designer Debbie Roberts MSGD - SGD2014 = Society of Garden Designers

shades of purple provided by 'Beni Otake' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Beni Otake') and 'Velvet Cloak' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak').
