House in the Cotswolds
We have installed a magnificent garden in the heart of the Cotswold, working with one of the UK’s top designers. The landscaping works encompassed major earth movements to form a new landscape, a new terrace garden, the formation of over 50 shrub and plant beds, a walled garden feature, re-planting of the tennis court area, the installation of semi mature trees and the creation of newly landscaped grounds.
The area surrounding the tennis courts was the first to be worked on and included the installation of a hazel tree copse, fencing, native hedge boundary and wild flower meadow areas.
The terraced gardens to the main house consist of a network of grass footpaths allowing access to a series of planting beds, contained by galvanised steel edging and planted with up to 14,000 shrubs and herbaceous plants and 25,000 bulbs.
Planting beds to the main garden lawn area are planted with a series of Fagus ‘bee-hives’ and Taxus ‘cloud’ hedge along with Buxus balls and other specimen plants and trees
The walled garden included a network of self-binding gravel foot-paths with Cotswold stone edgings which in turn allowed access to the greenhouse and a patchwork of newly created planting beds. These beds have been used for the growing of fruit and vegetables for use not only of the estate household but also a local pub restaurant.
