VILLAGE GARDEN

I worked with my clients developing a garden which, is mature and surrounds a cottage dating from the 15th century, requiring a sensitive touch.

A calm, green garden rich in genius loci has been developed for family life.

The front driveway and enclosed back garden work together, with plants unifying the two places.

The driveway is framed by mature multistem trees which have been up pruned and a newly planted Yew hedge.

The back garden is a private place for children, dogs and entertaining. The structure of box hedging surrounds a verdant lawn which, is balanced with expressive multistem trees casting delicate shadows and creating a feeling of relaxation and intimacy.
