Gosselin Road in September

For many gardeners, life without lawn is as unthinkable as autumn without leaves, but for Anne Godfrey it was a natural step in her small suburban garden. ‘I’d already been nibbling away at the lawn to widen the borders, but what little was left was ruined by our terrier, Myrtle,’ she explains. Two years later, and she has nothing but praise for her lawn-free patch. ‘It always looks tidy and is much less work — with grass, you’re forever looking out of the windows and fretting about mowing.’ Now, her 9m x 30m patch is very low maintenance, and a joy in every season, especially in autumn when a blaze of  dahlias, salvias, pelargoniums and pineapple lilies is tempered by ornamental grasses.
