TOWN HOUSE | BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
We were commissioned to create a completely new garden with a country house feel surrounding a new build house in a leafy road in Buckinghamshire.
This was achieved through using elements of a country house garden, such as a crunchy gravel driveway, which we flanked with a wildflower meadow to soften the approach to the property. This helped achieve a rural feel and together with fruit trees, provided a much valued wildlife habitat.
Despite the built up setting surrounding the property, we were able to lose and soften the boundaries with planting, adding layered hedges to conjure up a sense of depth and create views. In doing this, we were able to borrow and frame beneficial features of neighbouring gardens, whilst masking unwanted elements from view. We also removed non native overbearing trees to provide more light and visible sky to the garden.
A grass tennis court maintains a valuable sense of space, which can be used for both tennis and a recreational lawn
A strong sense of structure, in the form of evergreen topiary and trained trees, provide lower maintenance and year-round interest. Newly planted, this garden will evolve over time, with planting maturing quickly to fill out borders in the next few seasons.
We have introduced a maintenance team to our clients and will continue to visit the garden to carry out landscape consultancy to ensure the garden develops as planned.
