A garden of two halves with a very high wall separating the areas with no means of access to the second area from the first. Listed Building Consent was granted for a wrought iron gate to be built into the wall giving access to the area beyond. An old glass, slate and lead roof in poor repair over this area was renovated and a secret garden for entertaining was created. The main garden to the back of the house was originally laid to lawn with bad drainage problems. The lawn was removed, land drains were installed, raised brick planting beds were built and gravel and stepping stones paths linking all areas were laid. A timber pergola was erected along the length of the high wall. Lush planting in the raised beds was undertaken and climbers planted on the pergola. The dominating wall was no longer a problem with the eye being drawn away to the garden below.

The whole garden is looking spectacular. Most of the neighbours have called round – all without exception are knocked out by the changes. Many, many thanks again for all your help in helping us achieve the vision.
