I got a call a couple of years ago from Ginni who had recently bought a splendid country estate in Buckinghamshire featuring a magnificent Georgian style house & spectacular views over the Chilterns. The garden was overgrown & she contacted me as she liked the garden I designed at Orchard House; a project of similar scale featured in Homes & Gardens magazine. Both such great projects to be involved with. Using the same team we have now completed 3 phases & phase 4 – the front is due to start imminently (end of 2022). It has now also featured in Homes & Gardens magazine which fills me with pride. These images are of the garden so far… phase 1 is the secret garden hidden behind smart formal hedges with mature topiary & themed planting & the kitchen garden featuring a fabulous Alitex greenhouse & raised beds. Phase 2 comprises a series of really beautiful formal courtyards around the rear & sides of the house. Phase 3 is the naturally styled pond (small lake!) with a sinuous boardwalk & huge Scottish boulders. Glimpses of this can be seen from the drive via fabulous arches within the new mature hedge. The water glitters & both my clients & wildlife love it! Finally I’ve included a couple of my original drawings for this large scheme.
