ProjectsTerraced Garden

This was a complete transformation of a large town house garden in the middle of the historic town of Petworth in West Sussex.

Trees and plants were sourced in person to ensure we selected the best for the sunny, warm and enclosed space. New lighting was installed including up-lighters to the four, pleached umbrella plum trees. A small water fountain was sourced for the client (who liked cherubs). A tumble-down wall effect was built to create the feeling of an ancient ruin.

Paving was chosen from a National Trust range – modelled on natural stone at Petworth House – made from precast-concrete (the first time it had been used in Petworth). New dry-stone walls were built (as above); a lovely oak gate was installed with a privacy grille was made especially by a local carpenter; and old style black edgings were sourced to frame the lower flower beds.
