This walled garden comprised a very uneven lawn and a narrow border along one wall. The brief was to create seating areas that took advantage of the sun at certain times of the day, including a main patio and entertainment space, and a smaller area enjoying a view through to the field beyond. The client is a keen gardener and wanted larger borders and more scope for varied planting. The eventual design is a simple formal layout connecting key areas of the garden. The planting is however naturalistic in style and the use of later flowering perennials and grasses means that the garden retains colour and structure well into autumn. The stone cobbles used for the construction of main paths were recovered from the site.
