About the property:
A property nestled back from a busy arterial road into a Lincolnshire town. The large sloping garden had been previously designed but the clients wished to ring some changes. Mature trees, water features and some stone clad retaining walls were in place
Decompartmentalise the garden, giving separate areas a sense of unity. True plant lovers who enjoy tinkering in the garden, they wanted this space to become a series of comfortable rooms, a garden full of interest.
Terrace the large sloping lawn into three distinct spaces. The top (rose) garden, the White Garden and the Wild Ponds Garden
Add chunky green oak pergolas and an iron arbour for climbing plants.
Create new paths and directions, allow more relaxed way of exploring the rooms, with the use of curving walkways and benches.
Open up the heavily planted space around the house to create simple uncluttered sunny terraces.
In small areas, encourage simple but bold planting combinations for a more serene effect.
Widen the surrounds of the ornamental fish pond to lend it more visual power.
Repeat plant to create rhythm within the separate gardens.
