Country Garden, High Littleton, Bath
To design a family garden for entertaining (potential for marquee) and children’s play.
The old farmhouse had been extensively modernised but lacked a garden.
Established hedgerows bordered the sloping plot, which was an overgrown field containing a derelict barn.
I quickly realised the potential of the stone in the barn to build walls and steps and raised one end of the garden to create a level lawn. This would then allow for a flagstone terrace and wooden rose pergola as an entrance to the gently sloping gardens. Traditional herbaceous borders and mixed shrub planting with groups of native trees formed soft shapes and interesting routes around the garden. A wildlife pond and viewing deck at the far end provided a destination and an opportunity to view the house and surrounding countryside.
The granny annexe overlooked the old concrete yard. My client had a passion for roses, so this became a formal rose garden with gravel paths.
