Country Garden, Petersfield, Hampshire

I was appointed by my clients at the start of an extensive renovation project near Petersfield. The house comprised 3 buildings of different ages and the area outside the house desperately needed updating and completely redesigning to reflect the rural location and to give my clients a beautiful garden to enjoy. The pictures below show a brand new garden just 3 months after it was finished. A large area of paving, an unwanted swimming pool, and tropical rockeries were transformed into a series of terraces which divide the garden directly outside the house into intimate spaces, each with their own character. The old swimming pool has been replaced by a gravel garden and circular pool. The upper lawn is surrounded by colourful planting, and a raised pool provides a home for my client's favourite sculpture. Subtle garden lighting has been used throughout the space to illuminate key features such as steps, sculpture and trees.
Project Cost: £100,001 - £150,000

An old unwanted swimming pool has been filled in to create a gravel garden complete with circular sunken pool. Water flows down a stepped rill from the raised pool above which is home to my client's mermaid sculpture. Photo: Janet Bligh Garden Designs

The gravel garden provides the perfect environment for sun-loving plants which would struggle in the clay soil in the rest of the garden. Photo: Janet Bligh Garden Designs
