I designed the garden in 2009 after the completion of the house and we started construction of the gardens in 2010. I say we, as it was largely a family affair – the projected construction costs for the entire garden were approximately £500k so we tackled it ourselves! A majority of the construction was finished by the latter half of 2016, with further projects developed in 2018/19 with the completion of the Orto, and in 2021 I expect to have a brand new Contemporary Courtyard Garden completed.
The garden is located in north Hampshire between Newbury and Basingstoke and benefits from a southerly facing aspect on a gentle slope, a fertile soil with an acidic ph, good drainage and a fabulous micro-climate which allows for the growth of some very interesting planting schemes, as you will see.
