In a large garden surrounding a Regency house, we created a series of different garden rooms, each with its own special atmosphere.  These include places for dining, breakfasting, swimming, playing tennis and harvesting fruit, herbs
and flowers.

A separate cottage in the garden has recently been surrounded by romantic planting for a fairytale feel.  Future
plans include a woodland walk through
the mature woods, enhanced by fragrant winter and spring-flowering shrubs
and bulbs.

As the garden is on a slope, level terraces were created for a calming and restful effect.  The retaining walls were made using local stone, the vernacular
walling ensures the garden sits well in
its surroundings.

Steps lead up to a raised jacuzzi with spectacular views.  To allow a view
through to the orchard from the new jacuzzi, we removed a poor hedge and installed a hand-crafted, cleft oak fence and gate.  The lovely old apple trees in the orchard with narcissi and camassias and introduced drifts of wild flowers in the glades.  Paths leading to places to sit are mown through the long grass each year.

Lush planting and hedges enclose the swimming pool for shelter and fragrance. The garden above the pool is abundantly planted and is in bloom from spring until late autumn.
