Helen and Clive’s Estate

Surrounded by fields, this large, new family home needed a front and rear garden to integrate the house into the garden and garden into it’s surroundings.
A large circular pool, with water running over granite boulders became the central feature to the front garden. The raised edge to the pool provides somewhere to sit and observe the surroundings amid the Mediterranean planting. An ornamental orchard was introduced to flank the long drive while mixed hedging of holly, hawthorn and hornbeam strengthened the boundaries without concealing the views. A large terrace wrapped around the rear with steps leading to lawns and fields. Pyramid yews with soft herbaceous plants provides all year structure and interest with the softness required for this country space.
