Country Farmhouse Garden

A re-development of a large farmhouse garden in East Sussex, including soft and hard landscaping. The project included installation of the back garden family eating and social area, a front garden parterre and a large side kitchen garden area. The garden was designed by award winning garden designer Nigel Philips, Fellow of the Society of Garden Designers. The kitchen garden included fencing, oak raised beds, a fruit cage, Greenhouse, compost bins with Breedon Gravel pathways. The parterre was planted up with Buxus hedging and included a new boundary native fence. The family eating and social area was designed to link the main house to the guest house and the main driveway to the old stables. It included installation of two oak pergola areas, one defining and creating shade to a chill out space and the other, framing the stunning views from the house as well as creating a pergola walkway to the main space. Bull nosed steps needed to curve around the kitchen door access, we also installed a number of sets of steps to lead to and from the driveway and the patio. The main material used was sandstone which was paired with Vande Moortel brick paving . A curved Vande Moortel path sloped down towards the side entrance to the guest house. Deep perennial sloping beds framed these hard landscaping spaces softening them with stunning colour and movement. Perennial borders framed the lawn opposite the guest house with swaths of repetitive planting linking the space beautifully.
