Images 1-3: As part of the ongoing development of the estate, we were asked to restructure the gardens surrounding a listed country house using sympathetic materials and planting styles. The objective was to provide a more intimate setting to the immediate area for entertaining whilst still allowing and encouraging the views out to the wider landscape. The planting has been designed for successional flower colour, moving out away from the house as the seasons progress. Images 4-6: show an 'adult' garden, with emphasis on clean horizontal and vertical lines. The new scheme incorporates a new lap pool, with a bespoke-designed gazebo over a sunken hot tub area. There is also an outdoor kitchen/barbeque and specially designed screens which provide continuity and texture to the boundaries. Key materials are timber, in the form of western red cedar, and British Purbeck limestone. Key structural planting is provided by multi-stemmed Persian Ironwood trees (Parrotia Persica).
