The client was keen for the area around the terrace to be relatively formal, gradually becoming more relaxed towards the end of the garden. As the existing terrace was in reasonable condition and of a decent size, it was sensible to keep it. However, as it lacked interest, we decided to segrate the terrace by installing a contemporary metal arch into two new planted borders, to create a designated 'lounging' space and dining area. The arches frame a small, but striking water feature when viewed from the lounging area. Borders adjoining the terrace add interest.
A kitchen garden with raised borders is positioned towards the end of the garden. A wildflower meadow separates the formal lawn from the orchard at the rear.
"I am absolutely delighted with my newly designed and planted garden. The planting is stunning and has provided interest, colour and structurechanging each month. I have spent hours of pleasure pottering and just looking out at the garden bringing a smile to my face when I do.
Caroline is a real pleasure to work with; very clear and detailed in her approach and bringing her flair and ideas to create a beautiful garden. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
