Fox Cottage

Our client had a large plot with adjoining equestrian facilities. Following the development of an office with the garden, there was a need to define the spaces required for private use by the family, and allow for business visitors to the office. A sunken patio adjacent to the house allowed for a private dining / seating area to be created with a new path through the garden from a parking area to the office.
All the materials were selected to sympathetically blend with the architecture and materials palette of the architecture, with clay brick paths and black stained timbers to pergola to match the Tudor beams of the house.
Extensive new planting provided colour and seasonal interest, with low box hedging to create a neat and tidy structure to the beds. The existing ditch was transformed with dry rock bed and newly planted banks to create a feature within the garden.
