Created from a barren menage, this garden unifies an existing juvenile orchard and old farm house by creating a wide Scree Garden that encompasses a drive and the main access routes to and from the house along with a formal Herbaceous Garden and an open Sculpture Lawn.
Each distinctive garden area is richly planted with a mixture of shrubs and herbaceous plants to create habitat for small birds, butterflies and beneficial insects.
The Scree Garden is formed using a series of large box balls, acting as guide markers across the site linking the house, Herbaceous Garden and Orchard.
The Herbaceous Garden is terminated with a classical open fronted summer house, which is tiled and finished in the local vernacular style. Long sweeping borders run the entire length with a central circular open area edged with box playing host to an informal cast iron water pool echoing the agricultural past of the site.
The Herbaceous Garden leads onto the Sculpture Lawn which is dominated by a large bronze sculpture and three multi-stem birch.
The Orchard is planted with a wealth of heritage fruits including, plums, quince, gages and apples.
