The new design has a formal, symmetrical structure softened by planting and the use of sympathetic materials, plus a couple of little twists to the symmetry to make life more interesting. The photographs were taken within a year of completion and the garden already looks perfectly at home in its setting.
This charming little country house needed a garden to match. The existing garden detracted from the pleasing symmetry of the house. The grass was very poor and uneven and the new fence dominated the garden – a common problem! There were a range of plants within the garden and a need to decide which to keep and which to remove.
"Jayne listened to our extensive requirements – a dog friendly, low maintenance, contemporary cottage garden to set off the traditional house – and came up with a design that we were delighted with. We now love spending time in the garden and it has become a pleasure rather than a chore. We would definitely recommend Jayne to anyone and would certainly use her again."Rosie Baxendine, Perthshire
