COUNTRY HOUSE | BERKSHIRE
We were asked to rethink the design layout of this classically designed 1930's house surrounded by rather overgrown informal gardens. We incorporated some of the historical features, such as a Sorbus aria tunnel and mature Lime trees.
Levels were regraded and an old Yew hedge was removed to open the wide and sweeping views over the lovely surrounding countryside. Park railings were installed to protect the gardens from grazing animals and to create a classic rural feel.
The alignment of the drive was altered and a new parking area created to the side of the house allowing a clear view of the front facade upon approach.
We divided the garden into formal rooms separated by various types of native hedging, with soft planting to create a relaxed feel and to blend the garden with its rural surroundings.
