formal country garden

This country village garden measures aproximately 30 by 40 metres. It was virtually all
lawn with large, overgrown, time-consuming
borders along the perimeters.

The clients’ brief was for a more formal-style garden with lower-maintenance demands and a small vegetable and fruit garden.

The lower patio area was re-styled as a more intimate seating/dining area with raised beds of herbs and scented plants. Concrete pavers were replaced with sandstone and brickwork to complement the walls of the house. Oak arches underplanted with climbing roses were designed to create a transition from patio to formal garden. The main garden was laid out in blue and white lavender-filled squares of box and hedges of yew.
