In an idyllic setting, the gardens were lacking a cohesive design and the mill race had become completely overgrown with Alders and invasive species, such as Bamboo, Rhododendron and Himalayan Balsam.


The new layout includes a herb garden and formalised planting schemes at the front of the house. We also designed a croquet lawn, a new terrace, new herbaceous border backed by mature pleached Hornbeam. Progressive garden rooms culminate in a partially walled productive garden.

The unsightly and invasive planting obscuring the mill race was removed and the river bank softened and stabilised by the introduction of native marginal planting.

A new decorative timber bridge provides a crossing point, focusing views through a new wetland meadow, allowing a complete route around the garden which straddles both sides of the mill race.

Finally, backed by English Nature, a silted up carrier has been restored to provide a trout-spawning stream, together with a fish pass to connect the two watercourses.
