Client: Mrs H.D
Landscaping Brief: The clients had a vast space of land but it lacked the colour and warmth. The design scope was to use elements of a traditional English garden to add interest and vibrancy.
Project Summary: The brief was to create a stunning English country garden redesign that could make the most of the vast amounts of space, creating areas that were designed to be meandered through on a warm day, but easy to maintain in the cooler months.
We started our redesign by looking at the flowers and shrubs that would make up the bulk of the redesign. Carefully chosen planting injects colour, texture and scents into the outdoor space so it was key that the design incorporated as many scents and types of plant as possible.
We used many varieties of ornamental grasses for a natural feel and the main planting colour theme is was purple, with perennial wall flowers all along the circular sides of the garden used to create a very full effect.
A trellis was added in the mid point of the garden to terrace and divide the spaces into more intimate areas.
Towards the front of the house, anew sandstone path with specially designed planters opens up the walkway into the garden and provides a lovely vantage point to enjoy the scenery.
The result is the garden looks full and interesting, whilst the main areas for maintenance are the shrubs and plants along the borders, a deceptively simple redesign.
