The house was being extensively modified and the link between it and the garden required reworking. Anthony Paul had worked with the client before at the property, and so redesigned the areas around the house to suit the houses redevelopment, sympathetically blending it back into the wider garden and surrounding landscape.  Bushy Business was tasked with implementing the plans, creating a new Yorkstone terrace, timber and brick retaining walls, Breedon gravel pathways and new lawns flanked by large swathes of block planting leading down to the water’s edge.

The result was a stunning, tranquil space that blended the house into the landscape and provided interest through the seasons using a simple palette of plants including, Hydrangea ‘Annabelle’, Lavendula, Echinacea, Verbena, Ligularia, Geranium, Salvia in blocks to give real impact.
