This garden has free-draining, acidic soil and the rear of the house faces west. It had several mature pine trees in a south facing lawn with narrow borders around the house. The garden is approximately 44 x 31m.
The clients wanted a front garden with attractive borders and a seating area with a path linking it to the rear garden past an area for a potager. In the rear garden they wanted an extended series of patios surrounded by borders, and steps up to the main lawn.
On the northern side of the house they wanted a weatherproof area for a boat and the current compost area dividing into 3 sections for easier management.
Requirements for the new garden/landscape architecture:
Extended south facing patio
Seating area in the front garden
Lawn in the rear garden
Focal point from the kitchen and lounge such as a pergola
Attractive borders to enhance the views from the house
“Ann has turned what was effectively a blank canvas of a grass-and-path plot, hedge-divided front-from-back, into a carefully landscaped-and-crafted wraparound, cottage-style garden which has been a delight to see come alive as its first season has progressed.
"From start to finish, Ann’s eye for detail, spec, design and landscaping has been superb. She has also been a pleasure to work with for her pleasant, fuss-free, down-to-earth approach plus sound skills, knowledge and workmanship.
The garden was constructed by Gregorys Landscaping, and the plants were supplied by Chichester Trees and Shrubs.
