A new passive house built on the site of an old bungalow. This garden wraps around most of the house which means there is a really stong connection to it from many of the inside rooms. One of the biggest problems with this site was that the house sat at the highest point with the whole garden falling away from it.
To separate the driveway from the main garden, a large drystone effect Black Quartz wall was installed facing a large retaining wall. On top of this sits a hornbeam hedge which when established will give some separation and privacy for the main garden. Inside the main garden, are a series of herbaceous beds broken up by black slate paths and gravel areas. There is a main patio in the heart of the garden and lawn space to the rear.
The client is a really keen gardener and had lots of input into the planting spaces which we are very excited about going back to see. The garden is only recently completed so more photos will be coming in 2017 as it starts to mature.
