A coach house in Cheshire, which was featured on the BBC’s Homes under the Hammer, required a design for its walled garden which would return it to its former glory as well as remain sympathetic to the period.
- enhance the existing walled gardens to optimise the aesthetics of the property and its setting
- create division between driveway and garden areas
- enhance the link between outdoor and indoor spaces
- create multiple spaces for seating, relaxing and entertaining throughout the garden
Sourcing quality heritage landscaping products can be difficult and time-consuming, so the National Trust Landscape Collection provided the ‘country house’ look required and in the quantities desired.
Petworth Flagstones from Westminster Stone's Country House range were used for the main patio area and the pathway to the summer house, which were edged with complementary kerbstones.
A new dividing wall was created to re-establish the old courtyard and coping stones along the top provide an old-world charm.
The owners wanted to create an outdoor seating area with central fire pit, so a 7m circle was created using Brick Pavers from the Kitchen Garden range.
Lastly, the driveway was renewed using Snowshill Shingle from the Cotswold Manor range.
The owners were thrilled with the completed garden which mixed traditional design with a contemporary twist.
