Contemporary Cottage Garden

This garden surrounds a newly built, contemporary, thatched house in East Dorset. It is approximately n x n m. The open plan kitchen/lounge on the first floor leads out onto a glass balcony facing east to benefit from the morning sun and the fabulous view across the Purbeck hills. This meant that the garden will be viewed from above as well as at ground level. The clients wanted a garden that would be easy to maintain and resilient as they intend to let the property on a short term basis.

Requirements for the new garden design/landscape architecture:

  • A patio in the sun
  • A sweeping lawn
  • Hard landscaping materials to complement the sections of Purbeck stone on the house
  • Stepping stones
  • Resilient planting to disguise the septic tank
  • A rotary washing line at the back of the house
  • A seating area for the evening sun
