The brief was to create a pretty, country garden near the new orangery and paved terrace.
This house has the most wonderful views across a large garden which has been rough grass and an unloved border for many years.
The new scheme has classically planted borders with mostly blue, purple, pink and white flowers, and a large terrace and lawn which then merges, over a ha-ha, into a more relaxed planting theme of shrubs and ground cover perennials in island beds surrounded by rougher grass and spring bulbs, with ornamental trees beyond a hornbeam hedge which will blend with the countryside beyond.
Pieces of stone found on site have been used in the borders as a bench and standing stone feature. A large stone trough has been moved to the terrace.
The photos show the different areas in various stages of planting and development and I will add to the gallery when I’ve seen the garden again this year.
