Large Cotswold Garden with a Pool and Levels
The proposed garden was to be a space to entertain and have fun, offering sanctuary and privacy. The garden was to be used as a place to cook, eat, relax and unwind and was to be adaptable and suitable for families with children.
The design aimed to be between traditional and contemporary providing a mix between a Cotswold and a more modern theme. The entertaining area is situated close to the property for ease of access but is softened by warm herbaceous and shrub planting. The reflection pool gives a calmness to the dining area whilst starting to outline the movement through the garden. The levels are broken up into different areas, some lawn, some planting. The sections dictate a non linear movement through the garden. A warm planting theme was agreed aiming to make the garden, due to its size, appear less distant from the house.
