Project Brief: A large country garden close to the South Downs has undergone a dramatic renovation. Bold combinations of perennials and grasses sweep around the house. A large kitchen garden with raised beds and a fruit-cage has been constructed and an old greenhouse has been transformed into a herb garden. New paths were laid to give the space structure and improve flow through the garden. A warm colour palette and deep tones create a moody evocative space.

Planting: Phillyrea, parottia, fagus sylvatica purpurea

Materials: Limestone. Oak.
