The design maintains the garden’s open feeling, which the client values, with the structure of the original paths re-emphasised. Large informal shrub borders, a small orchard and scented plants around the house have brought birds and wildlife in, bringing the garden to life. The house is beginning to feel more rooted in its surroundings. Planting is now well under way………….we look forward to seeing this lovely garden develop and mature.
This large walled garden was proving too blank a canvas for its new owner, artist Maureen Jessett. She had seen gardens she admired, so our task was to translate these ideas into the new garden. The garden also presented some challenging conditions in terms of shade and drainage.
"I cannot thank Jayne enough for her advice and help, planning my 3 acres of walled garden. She listened to the flowers I liked and the colours I wanted, and with great consideration of the position of the garden and the soil, came up with what is turning out to be a perfect design. Every tree and shrub is happy in its situation, and in a few years time I will have a lovely colourful, easily maintained garden. I could not have managed it all without her, and she was a pleasure to work with."Maureen Jessett
