Arts & Crafts Garden


This garden has free-draining, acidic soil and the rear of the house faces west. It has several mature pine trees in a south facing lawn with borders around the house. The garden is approximately 44m x 31m. The front garden has attractive borders and a seating area with a path linking it to the rear garden past an area for a potager. In the rear garden there is an extended series of patios surrounded by borders, and steps up to a circular patio under a pergola and to the main lawn. On the northern side of the house there will be a weatherproof area for a boat and the current compost area will be divided into 3 sections for easier management.


Requirements for the new garden/landscape architecture:


  • Extended south facing patio
  • Seating area in the front garden
  • Lawn in the rear garden
  • Focal point from the kitchen and lounge such as a pergola
  • Potager
  • Attractive borders to enhance the views from the house


The garden was constructed by Gregorys Landscaping, and the plants were supplied by Chichester Trees and Shrubs.
