What: A Large Garden On A Working Farm
When: March 2012
This was a large garden on a working farm.
Client brief - very keen and enthusiastic gardeners who
wanted to turn a tennis court into a formal garden based on Alnwick
The client left it to us to use our experience, expertise and
imagination to come up with a suitable and workable concept. They
wanted to incorporate water with formal pathways and symmetrical
planting and sitting areas.
G-Scapes used a large granite sphere with water bubbling over it
into a rill flowing 8-10 metres down steps, before disappearing
into a central cobbled reservoir. From here, the water was
also lifted over a stone fountain. The result was magnificent.
Symmetrical flower beds gave formality and upright oak sleepers
added a see-through backdrop to a seating area and main viewpoint.
Quercus Ilex (evergreen oak) hedging was planted to form a boundary
and enclose the garden from the surrounding fields.
