Bury St Edmunds garden

A Suffolk town garden

The garden uses generous, site-sensitive planting combined with bespoke natural stone paving to provide a restful, enveloping green space.

Oversize sawn limestone paving units create two distinct seating areas nestled amongst the naturalistic planting. Limestone gravel offers a contemporary minimalism and lower maintenance gardening. A simple bowl introduces the reflective, calming quality of water.

This is a garden that simultaneously resonates with the Suffolk countryside while offering a transportive quality, giving the clients a restful green retreat.

The plant palette of hornbeam, pines, perennials and grasses references the Suffolk landscape, all suiting the free-draining soils of the site.

A unified boundary treatment of hornbeam hedge and pleached trees give the garden a simplified visual coherence and improved privacy. Four multi-stem hornbeam trees offer sculptural form, helping to shape the space within the garden.

This design creates an immersive modern town garden for relaxed living.

Dwarf pines provide year round texture and structure, combining with the hornbeam to create an immersive green space. A restrained palette of flowering perennials and grasses add colour, movement and contrast.
