A garden design and build for a client who had moved to a new barn conversion with a blank canvas.
Due to the nature of local conservation the design had to rely on using natural materials, and avoid permanent hard landscape features.
A symmetric design based around a dining area flanked by timber raised planting beds and flat cotswold stone paths. Betula jacqumontii Birches were planted in each corner of the main entertaining space to offer dappled shade for this south facing plot.
The timber was painted with Cuprinol shades seagrass to help lift the planted areas that were set against the dark backdrop of the black timber barn.
