This property, which has recently undergone extensive and creative renovation, sits within a beautiful old brick garden wall set within established woodland.
The terraces reflect the linear design of the house, with the soft planting acting as a buffer to the traditional walled boundary.
The basalt paving flows out from the house, continuing the detailed pattern.
Planting is used to enclose the individual outdoor spaces that flow out from and connect to the rooms. The private spaces are more fully enclosed around bedrooms with the reception rooms being more open and fluid. Plants are repeated to ensure the whole garden works together.
Generous lawns sweep around from the drive to the pool and provide space for play.
We are delighted to have won the prestigious Society of Garden Designers (SGD) Awards 2019 Medium Garden Award for our Winchester Garden.
The garden was also a finalist in the Planting Design Category.
What the judges said: “A beautifully simple, calm and coherent garden where the designer has paid excellent attention to the contrasts of shape and form in the planting to complement the architectural spaces. The use of water to creating light and a view of the sky is inspired and the lovely repetition of colour, and wonderful texture and movement created by mass grass planting is fabulous. A very accomplished and relaxing space.”
