Dale & Heybrook Garden Designers Oxford Cotswolds

This ongoing project with Dale & Heybrook Garden Design involves the development of the grounds of a Grade I listed Georgian country house.  Redesigned by Sir John Soane in the 19th century, to provide light, elegant rooms with views of the parkland beyond, the house is now furnished with an imaginative and dramatic collection of objects.

Large topiary has been planted along the entrance drive to add drama without too much maintenance.  Outside the front facade, the entrance court has new areas planted with long-flowering roses in creamy tones to echo the stone of the house.  Pots of topiary and colourful seasonal planting add impact and fun outside the front door.

The property is theatrical and fabulous and is available for private hire for events from weddings to location shoots.  The previously neglected gardens are now designed to provide a stage setting for the house and its interior.
