Private Garden, Beer

Completed: 17/10/2017
Location: Beer
Budget: £180,000.00

An important and imposing Arts and Crafts House set in a conservation area in substantial grounds overooking the sea and town. The garden was virtually unnavigable due the steeply sloping landscape. Penny Pritchard, one of Tony Benger Landscapings inhouse designers, took the brief to make an ornamental garden, that incorporated terraces, level lawns, a formal water feature, and focal points. The garden has commanding views of the coast and one challenge was to orientate the garden and it's viewing points to take advantage of its aspect. The steepness of the site posed the challenge of how to access and move around the site safely with heavy machinery, and how to effectively get materials in and out. Extensive cropped, Purbeck faced retaining walls bring natural warm honey colours into the garden. Flights of stone steps and paths lead from the top patio to a tranquil seating terrace of tumbled sandstone and south cerney gravel overlooking two large deep "infinity"pools with water being recycled through ornamental fountains. This whole area is flanked with mixed planting of Agapanthus, Pittosporum "Tom Thumb",Hebe pinguifolia sutherlandii,Melianthus major, rosa bonica miscanhtus "klein fontain" , erigeron and thymes all adding to the overall meditteranen theme. The garden extends onto 2 level lawn areas retained with oak sleeper walls and then a grass path leads through wildflower punctuated with fruit trees dropping down onto a lower level complete with Welsh slate pots.

Private Garden, Lyme Regis

Completed: 17/10/2017
Location: Lyme Regis
Budget: £120,000.00

This garden in Lyme Regis was designed by Hugo Bugg, the youngest Gold Medal winner at RHS Chelsea. A great design that presented major landscaping challenges to overcome including the removal and levelling of a large slope, narrow access, drainage as there were many underground spring and weather conditions - the garden was built in winter and the large movement of bulk materials including, topsoil, subsoil and concrete. Using specialist vehicles and equipment that could cope with the terrain, the groundwork crew excelled under the direction of Jerry, one of our team leaders, in the safe movement of hundreds of tonnes of materials. The finished garden demonstrated how it is possible to transform an ordinary large sloping garden into a functional, cohesive space for seating, growing produce and attracting wildlife. The design was striking and demonstrated the difference that good garden design can make, not only to the landscape but the look and feel of the house by rooting it in its surroundings creating a perfect partnership between house and garden.

Shute Primary School Amphitheatre

Completed: 17/10/2017
Location: Shute, Axminster
Budget: £17,000.00

The stage area forms the major part of the £25,000 grounds project which the School has been fundraising for over the past two years. Tesco Bags of Help Scheme donated almost half of the money raised with other significant donations coming from East Devon AONB and The Northbrook Trust. Other local businesses including Bradfords, Otter Nurseries and Wains Transport supported by donations in kind or financially as well as individuals. "It has been a tremendous community effort and we are absolutely delighted with the result," said Clare Rinaldi, Head Teacher at Shute. "This will make a significant difference to the School and locality and provide an amazing area for recreation and learning."
