This beautiful Arts & Crafts, Quartermain house, within the John Innes conservation area, needed a garden refresh.
The existing, narrow, crazy paved terrace was replaced with a generous terrace for entertaining. With curved steps down to the lawn and raised brick beds. A mix of herbaceous planting and evergreen structure frame and soften the terrace to make the most of the gardens South West aspect. A restricted calm, palette of planting, hold the scheme together. Views from the house are composed with the careful positioning of the steps and seating areas.
