What: Traditional Cottage Garden
This was a traditional cottage-style property with a small
Client brief - to add interest, retain intimacy, and
break up walls.
The area was paved in sandstone and a sitting area
constructed. Planting was introduced to disguise the walls,
and shade-loving plants such as hostas, ferns and heucheras were
used in particularly shady areas.
During excavation a paving slab was lifted to expose a
well. We decided to make a feature of it by covering with a
circular piece of glass, and placing a light within the well.
A potential problem was thus turned into an amazing feature.
