Inspired by the tiered garden designs of Chilean Landscape Architect, Juan Grimm, it features a more sustainable, drought tolerant planting scheme, reminiscent of the client’s homeland.
Inspired by the dry garden planting of the late Beth Chatto, the design demonstrates how it is possible to boost the biodiversity of the smallest of spaces with a spectacular display of drought tolerant planting, carefully selected for their flowering longevity and seasonal interest.
The design Inspiration has come from the two square oak panels in the Great Hall at Audley End House. We have taken their geometry, their simplicity and elegance in celebrating features of Jacobean design, but with a modern twist befitting of the 21st Century and through the creative use of shape and modern-day build materials.
"A Berkshire garden, which flows out across a steep escarpment into the treetops beyond, was the Supreme Winner in Pro Landscaper Magazine’s Small Project Big Impact awards 2022. Designed by Adam Vetere Landscape & Garden Design, the garden features a cantilevered deck, which appears to float across the 5m-high escarpment that cuts diagonally through the garden. The south-facing garden also features garrigue-style planting, with topiary for winter interest, in raised beds and a metal pergola to provide a shady eating area. Beyond this, steps lead down to the deck edged in Corten steel."
