Country House

The existing landscape around this refurbished country house was neglected and densely overgrown with an ill-defined and precariously sloping driveway.

Plan for Saddington Hall garden

A Leicestershire country house

Our scheme for this country garden required the rerouting of the driveway which previously abutted the house to allow for a raised terrace to extend the architectural aesthetic whilst retaining the relationship between house and landscape.

Natural stone paved paths around rolled gravel panels provide a restful surface to the terrace. Peripheral planted borders combine shrub roses, box swirls, yew spheres, Stipa grass and Alliums which softly link with the vistas to the landscape beyond.

Extensive clearance and rejuvenation of a small woodland retained the ecological habitat and improved the ground level flora diversity whilst facilitating accessibility.

Later phased works included the installation of a swimming pool and walled borders to the east of the site.
