My clients were building a new house on an old garden plot that had been neglected for many years. They commissioned me to design and landscape a new garden to link in with the beautiful setting and views. They wanted the garden to look very natural, as if it had been there for many years, but was easy to maintain and incorporated some modern design ideas that could be achieved using traditional materials.
The new design included generous terraces, paths and planting, a courtyard garden, a kitchen garden, large double herbaceous borders, a naturalistic pond and a driveway with parking. We also planted many new specimen garden trees, large drifts of spring bulbs and different varieties of hedging to give structure and all year interest.
