The Orangery Garden

On this project, a beautiful David Salisbury Orangery was incorporated within the much-loved garden of a Grade II listed Gloucestershire home, changing the focus of the family’s use, naturally gravitating them towards the light and airy extension.  Jon’s brief as designer was to fuse the established garden with the new Orangery Garden, creating a space that flowed beautifully and appeared always to have been so.

The tiled Orangery floor runs through to a similarly scaled terrace outside, wrapped in sun-loving lavenders. Low Cotswold stone walls hold back the ground level, giving the Orangery space to breath, and an HSP Summerhouse provides a strong vista line, drawing one out into the garden where the new borders merge seamlessly with the old.  Balance and width is introduced to the garden by using a cool, white-planted border with stunning multi-stemmed Betula jaquemontii trees to offset the more traditional herbaceous border on the opposite side of the lawn.

This garden has featured heavily as part of David Salisbury’s advertising campaign in magazines such as Homes and Gardens, Gardens Illustrated and House Beautiful.
