English Country Garden 

English Country Garden



Address: New Barn, Swineshead Lane, Riseley, Bedfordshire



Client: Mrs. Miranda H



Status: Ongoing



Project Description: English Country Garden, Phase 2



An existing large grain and farm machinery store was to be converted into a modern new home using as much of the original steel frame as possible, cladding the frame using Cedar and Glass. The building is presently undergoing redevelopment and the clients required an "English Country Garden" landscape design with a modern twist, the land falls away from the building site, many trees needed to be removed to accommodate the build, a new grand terrace with swimming pool, log burner and glass screens was to be accessed by a wide flight of steps that lead through terraced garden areas down to the lawn.


It was requested that substantial new tree planting was designed as part of the scheme, keeping a large expanse of grass that ran down to a natural pond and summer house with its own feature garden area and jetty. Wildflower meadow is to be cultivated around the lawn with grass paths mown through it to provide a journey around the garden. New native hedges are to planted on the boundaries.


No grasses are to be incorporated in the planting scheme but Roses, Lavender, clipped Bay trees, and Ferns along with other herbaceous perennials were permitted.


A paddock area is to be retained behind the summerhouse.

Turn Your Dream Into A Reality


Gardens are never finished they change with the seasons and plants continue to grow and change. A garden design will provide you with the ultimate concept to work towards, however not all gardens can be afforded in one go, so to complete the final garden may take several years, this will be dependent on your budget and time frame.


It is, however, possible to have a garden designed so that it can be built by the contractor in phases. In this way, a section can be completed and enjoyed, whilst the next phase is completed sometime in the near future.
