This project was for a large country garden surrounding an historic house in North Yorkshire. The client wanted a scheme inspired by the great gardens of the 20th century such as Hidcote and Sissinghurst. They stipulated the proposals should include a variety of ‘garden rooms’. The new design required the removal of several large farm buildings and the re-routing of the entrance drive to create a new double forecourt to the East of the property. Additionally there are large lawns, flower gardens, a knot garden, water gardens, fruit and vegetable areas and a raised viewing mound with a spiral walkway from which there are wonderful views out to the North Yorkshire Moors.
