Relaxed Coastal Garden, Christchurch

This Arts & Crafts style unique property lies set back a short distance from beautiful beaches on the Dorset Coast. This is a family garden for relaxing with friends and enjoying summertime and the outdoor life. Social cooking whether making pizza on the large table ready for the stone fired oven or BBQ’ing is much enjoyed especially after a long day on the water. The quiet palette of materials and planting of soft greys and smokey blues echo the seaside location.

The front garden layout and planting adds to the atmosphere and adds to the strong sense of style of this original property. Planting softens boundaries and frames the house, buffering it from adjacent properties, allowing the house style to be seen.

The trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses and herbaceous perennials have been carefully selected to provide structure and interest, changing across the seasons and picking up the sea breezes.
