Following a full redesign by Tim Rees of Trees Associates of a large private garden in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, Cotswold Estates & Gardens undertook this substantial landscaping project over a number of years in various phases.

Work undertaken

  • Removal of existing infrastructure of drive, hedges and walls.
  • Creation of gravel parking area with redirection of drive.
  • Installation of formal water feature within a parterre with informal planting.
  • Construction of Cotswold stone retaining walls, steps, reclaimed stone terraces and gravel paths.
  • Recreation of sunken lawn including drainage to prevent flooding.
  • Planting of semi-mature cherry avenue, yew hedges and 4m-tall hornbeam pyramids.
  • Creation of totally netting-enclosed potager garden.

The existing 2-acre lake was dredged and re-shaped and the excavated silt was dried over a period and used to re-model the contours of the paddock above it to provide interest and to enhance the tree planting.

A Western red cedar decking bridge was constructed across one of the weirs created to control the water level in the lake.
