dorset woodland garden

dorset woodland garden

This garden is approximately 100 x 60m and faces west. It is slightly sloping and the soil is acidic loam.


The client wanted a flowing, curvilinear garden with a lot of planting to walk around. The large patio near the house should have a view of woodland across a large, sweeping lawn, and paths meandering through the woodland to a substantial vegetable garden and a tennis court.


Requirements for the new design/landscape architecture:


  • A large lawn with stepping stones across it

  • Shady woodland borders with different colour themes

  • A feature pergola for climbing roses

  • A substantial vegetable garden, protected from deer

  • Additional trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials


This garden was constructed by Gregorys Landscaping of Piddlehinton, and the plants have been sourced from Chichester Trees and Shrubs.


Full testimonial:



“Ann was superb from start to finish.  From our initial meeting, giving her our brief, through to the design, plant selection and liaising with the landscape gardener and plant supplier. She is extremely professional and has an extensive knowledge of the different types of plants available for different soils and sun/shade conditions. We highly recommend her."
