Garden Design Fairford, Gloucestershire

Set within the beautiful Cotswold town of Fairford this new build property had a bland, uninteresting garden.  the client’s had recently moved form the coast and wanted to create a garden that encompassed the Cotswold country feel.   They are keen gardeners and wanted plently of colourful and interesting planting to nurture and enjoy.  Growing vegetables and fruit was another passion on their wish list.  The clients also wanted a traditional summerhouse from where they copuld enjoy a full view of the garden regardless of the weather.

The design included a large lawn area and seating areas were surrounded with brightly coloured, luxuriant planting to give plenty of colour, texture and interest through the whole year.  Natural sandstone was used to blend with the Cotswold stone of the house.   A step stone path leads through the lawn to a delightful summerhouse nestled in the corner.  a simple water feature nearby provides a calming and cooling effect with the gentle sound of a bubble fountain.   A the other end of the garden was a work area with raised beds packed with fruit and vegetables, screened with contemporary slatted trellis for an updated country garden feel.
