I suppose this is more of a 'wrap around' garden than a front garden per se, though the lower green roof over the front porch does help it to count as such in my opinion ;)
I was delighted to spot this on holiday in Wales back in July. It's on the narrow road going down to the Gwili Railway just after you turn off the main road. It's the first time I've seen a green roof used on a private property; my previous sightings have been on public property like the cafe at Westonbirt (which is still going strong when we checked it out at last month's Treefest).
I love how this roof echoes the planting in front of it. I wonder which came first and whether there's a natural re-seeding cycle in operation between the two?
