Country garden, Alton, Hampshire
This garden was created from scratch in a rural location near Alton in Hampshire. The property (within a large farm estate) was undergoing major refurbishment to be rented out, and I was asked to design and oversee the landscaping of a garden which would be suitable for a quality family home. The site is windy but has beautiful views out to the countryside so planting was chosen to work with the site conditions without blocking the view beyond the garden. The planting scheme also had to be easy to maintain. The garden has an extensive lawn, and a large terrace for outside entertaining. There is sufficient space for a number of cars to park, electric entrance gates and a garden lighting system around the house, as well as irrigation for the lawn and flower beds.
