Meriden

This 5 acre garden was to be renovated and renewed following significant work to the old house.
The land slopes down and away from the house to meet the countryside beyond and has a very naturalistic layout with large ponds and banks and a number of very mature trees and hedges.

Some formal beds surround the house leading to increasingly informal areas providing a variety of wildlife habitats. A huge rocky bank creates a backdrop to the water and new trees sweep down the slope linking the boundaries to other features of the landscape.
