BRIEF: The design brief for this garden was to redesign the space around a new garden building/annexe; new terrace, improved circulation and pathways through the space, addition of water, deal with existing levels and improve the views down the garden to the fields beyond.
DESIGN SOLUTION: The final design plays on a ‘boathouse’ theme given the position of the new building in the garden; a ‘fragmented’ terrace joins a new dutch clay-paved path which winds its way through the garden. A serpentine-style reflecting pond provide interests and views from the new building and a corten-style water bowl will add atmosphere close to the new terrace. The surrounding area will be a ‘manufactured’ bog garden planted with irises and other moisture-loving plants.
Nb. The garden build is due to start in early 2020.
