A lovely opportunity to work with enthusiastic clients to create a country garden design in the heart of the Surrey Hills. The clients here approached me to make sense of and re-work their large country garden, which was overgrown and dilapidated. The clients wanted to work on the whole garden over time, but the areas closest to the house were naturally of highest priority, so I worked with them to produce an overarching plan, concentrating on these areas first, and devising way to reconcile the complex levels and angles of the site. The site has a total of 8 levels to the had landscaping, which required a practical design and precise setting out. The finished design uses a marriage of modern and traditional materials to create a classic yet modern country garden design – London Stone Gea luxury porcelain paving and Kenilworth Antique Bricks .
