Project Description

A traditional English country garden for a farmer and his wife to enjoy during retirement. The garden has been designed to reflect its rural setting and is seamlessly integrated into the open farmland by a ha ha at its boundary. Large sweeping lawns connect the formal garden spaces with productive areas, which in turn lead to the fields beyond.

Planting is bold and minimalist for ease of maintenance, with large areas of flowering shrubs and plenty of evergreen structure. Shady corners are lightened with a tapestry of lush bright greens and sunnier spots close to the house a riot of colour and texture. Many plants have been included to provide cut flowers and interesting foliage through the seasons with plenty of pollen rich plants for the bees and butterflies.
