This Grade II listed barn conversion, steeped in history, was to undergo complete re-furbishment in conjunction with our garden design. The garden would be viewed from living spaces on the ground floor and first floor bedrooms and balcony.
The design incorporated level changes to add interest through the space. Locally sourced materials in keeping with the house’s history were sourced to ensure a traditional style. Herringbone brick paths lead you around a bubbling, slate, centrally placed water feature and to the attractive bothy and greenhouse beyond.
A selection of existing mature trees form anchor points and height in the consideration of the space. The boundary walls allow climbers and espaliers a perfect home as well as a firm outline to the garden. The symmetry of the layout means that wherever viewed from, the garden had a sense of place and balance.
Topiary and pleached trees secured the planting design which was then interspersed with a calm, soft palette of varying heights through perennials, grasses and bulbs. The completed project secures a sense of tranquility and romanticism.
If you are looking for inspiration and design expertise to realise the full potential of your outdoor space, however large or small, we can work closely with you to create a bespoke garden that reflects your personal style and practical needs.
