A New Forest garden with ebullient planting

This farm garden reflects the clients’ love of colour and drama. The planting is bold and vivid around the upper lawn. The lower level is calmer with a circular lawn surrounded by plants in soft colours. The two are separated visually by a screen of tall grasses. The lower level feels secluded and includes an oak gazebo, clothed with rambling roses.
The orchard has been enhanced with wildflowers and is alive with insects.
A cobble and brick terrace beneath an oak pergola is inspired by New Forest shingle, clay and woodland.
