The Shire Barn

This steeply sloping garden has been designed using retaining walls and steps to create a series of delightful spaces linked by the rill and pools. The design cleverly addresses not only the obvious long axis of the garden but also ensures that each section of the garden relates to the different parts of the house inviting views out across the garden and to the landscape beyond making the space seem wider and larger. The client requested a largely white colour scheme but we added touches of lavender at the bottom of the garden and purple to the top subtly linking the two ends of the plot.
