Large paved terraces were created to surround a modernised barn, consisting of sawn yorkstone paving and Vande Mortel clay pavers. This included a circular paved area for entertaining which contained an outdoor kitchen, BBQ and stainless steel firepit. All brickwork was finished with a lime pointing mix. The naturally sloping garden was terraced into usable level lawn areas, which featured a silver birch avenue and dramatic planting borders.
A new build countryside property on a steeply sloping site required extensive groundworks to create level lawn areas which were then all laid with turf. A full planting scheme containing specimen trees and plants were installed to help soften the newly installed paths and patios. A feature dry stone wall was constructed to add a sense of age and history to the property.
The landscaping involved the creation of a circular cedar deck, a brick herringbone dining terrace with a pergola, and Italian limestone paving. A contemporary water feature formed the focus of the garden. A large boulder rockery planted with alpines was created to form a natural retaining wall and specimen multi-stem silver Birch trees were planted on the steep sloping borders to partially screen the house when using the garden.
A new Cotswold stone gravel front drive with a timber edge was installed to the front of the property, which framed a new large formal lawn.
A new build property set on 9 hectares of land on a site that required complete re-landscaping. This involved the creation of a large pond with an overhanging deck and summer house. Extensive groundworks were undertaken to create a large level formal lawn laid with turf, and large scale seeding to the parkland areas. Numerous large specimen trees were planted throughout the property including a swamp cypress avenue. Box hedging was then used to help define the formal lawn areas to the parkland.
Large scale specimen trees were planted on this project. This included pleached hornbeam trees to screen a seating and entertaining area. Large cherry trees were planted to form an avenue to the vista of the south Downs beyond. A full planting scheme was installed around the house and gardens, with a wildflower meadow established to underneath the cherry tree avenue.
