Northumberland Garden

The gardens at this property in Northumberland had fallen into disrepair over a number of years, requiring a complete redesign.

The resulting gardens fall into three different zones; the front garden and driveway, the family garden, including a kitchen garden potager, and, in the remains of an old walled garden, a terraced planting of naturalistic perennials with a central pool and rill cascading down to a small area of woodland.

Our client was keen to explore all possibilities for the design, with the proviso that the garden should be wildlife friendly, no chemical herbicides or pesticides should be used during the construction phase or thereafter, and that wherever possible the materials already on site should be re-used.

The resulting flower filled spaces buzz with wildlife, while the kitchen garden provides food for the family every day of the year.

We’re thrilled that this garden has featured in The English Garden and Country Living magazines, was Highly Commended in the Homes and Gardens Design Awards (large garden category) and shortlisted for the SGD design awards.
