Chilterns garden

A modern family garden in the Chiltern Hills

This design integrates the garden with the modernised architecture and surrounding Chilterns landscape.

To the front of the house, the garden has a soft, enveloping woodland feel. To the rear, contoured landforms and an ornamental meadow create a visual link to spectacular view of the rolling Chilterns landscape.

A large natural swimming pond is positioned where the garden meets the Chiltern Hills - a perfect spot to relax.

This design features sweeping areas of ornamental meadow, which wrap around the contemporary hard landscaping. Landforms are created to add contours to the garden, providing areas for play and exploration.

Paths are arranged in long, linear diagonals that cut through the planting, leading the eye to destination points within the garden and to views of the Chiltern Hills beyond.
