A contemporary village garden

A classic village house in a very rural location required a contemporary family garden to replace a grassy slope.

A classic yet contemporary family garden

This garden was first split into three levels to create flatter, more useable areas. The entire garden was then connected by a path which steps up and down the levels around the central lawn. A vegetable garden with raised beds and an Alitex greenhouse sits within an existing brick wall at one side along a path through cut flower borders. A long formal pond is framed by offset lines of pleached Hornbeam trees, providing a home to Koi carp. There are three sunny patio areas and a secluded firepit corner.
