This large Georgian country house had little interest beyond a yew hedge and a formal lawn. With expansive views to the countryside beyond, the challenge was to create a garden that felt as much part of the house as it did to the surrounding, less formal grounds.
This large front garden was unused and unloved. The client wanted the garden to have a purpose and encourage all the family to use it. A semi-circular layout was created with large borders flanking a brick herringbone path. A wild area to the rear of borders blends the formality of the layout into the existing surrounding shrubs and native species hedge.
A small garden, that for years was just a patch of lawn, has become a haven of calm and tranquillity in just a few months. A simple design was all that was required to create a quiet oasis; planting was key.
Working in conjunction with Morse Webb architects, we have developed the landscaping scheme for the new extension to the Countess of Brecknock Hospice, Andover. The design creates a peaceful garden with planting providing interest throughout the year.
Completely overgrown through years of neglect, this garden was totally redesigned to suit the lifestyle of the new owners. The brief was to create a traditional English garden with areas for seating, dining and a potager, whilst also providing colour and interest throughout the year.
A large family garden in need of a rethink! Teenage children meant that large areas no longer needed to be given over to play equipment; instead areas for seating and dining were created along with deep, densely planted borders for year round interest.
