This extensive garden occupies a west facing slope rising steeply up from the house. There are stunning views across the Staffordshire countryside.
The clients had recently retired. They wanted to grow fruit and vegetables, as well as having more useful space for the grandchildren to play. More than half the area is a woodland garden with winding paths and a rustic gazebo which is positioned to give a view framed by trees across the valley. A new patio with a formal pool gives a sheltered area outside the conservatory. Steps and paths lead up through a colourful border to an elliptical level lawn backed by a beech hedge. More steps lead up to the next level with another lawn and sloping kitchen garden and secret garden.
