This garden compliments the stunning architecture of this new home. Positioned overlooking the South Downs with wonderful views onto the landscape it was important that it merges out into the surrounding countryside.
Oak and metal gates lead to the entrance with groupings of topiary alongside planters. Within the central courtyard terrace a simple planting of specimen birch trees creates play of light and shadow against the buildings beautiful materials.
A large reflection pool is at the heart of the space and falls into a rill connecting the terrace.
The light of sky and movement of water makes for a tranquil space. Structures of green oak are left clean to connect to the detailing on the house and frame views around the property. A large greenhouse and vegetable/cutting garden is zoned with green oak framing enclosing the space for espalier fruit trees.
Planting of grasses, perennials and native hedging in lines and blocks are low maintenance whilst providing a long season of interest.
