This large private garden project was a total redesign by Tim Rees of Trees Associates and due to the large scale of the project Cotswold Estates and Gardens where required to undertake the work in phases. Initial phases included the removal of existing infrastructure including the drive, hedges and wall to allow the creation of a new gravel parking area and the redirection of drive. Formal gardens were created close to the house and included an Italianate water fountain within a buxus parterre and scented planting. The project required the construction of cotswold stone retaining walls, steps, reclaimed stone terraces and gravel paths. The sunken lawn had to be remodelled and drainage installed to prevent flooding and lavender borders created. The scheme required many large, semi mature plants, including an avenue of Cherry trees, mature yew hedges and 4m tall hornbeam pyramids.
The two-acre existing lake was dredged and re-shaped and the excavated silt was dried and reused to re-model the contours of the adjacent paddock to provide interest and to enhance the tree planting. A Western Red Cedar decking bridge was constructed across one of the weirs created to control the water level in the lake.
