Prairie style border plan

The border plan below is a reflection of the naturalistic prairie style of planting pioneered by designers such as Henk Gerritsen and Piet Ouldolf and would suit a plot measuring 4 metres wide by 2 metres deep. We have sought to adapt the style to fit a reasonably sized border and also take account of the UK’s more equable and damper climate. We have restricted the number of selections in groups of at least five or six and used classic prairie plants such as Achillea and Echinacea as well the usual mix of ornamental grasses. Alternative plants might include: Astilbe, Aster, Monarda, Helenium, Rudbeckii, Kniphofia, Sedum, Nepeta and Verbena as well a range of grasses such as Miscanthus, Stipa and Pannicum. Feel free to browse our Pinteret page here for further inspiration.
