Arts and Crafts Garden

This is a large garden for an Arts and Crafts style house.

Location: Derbyshire

Brief

To give the garden a face lift, enhancing the features that already existed, in an Arts and Crafts style.

Solution

Statues are utilised throughout the garden in a formal sunken seating area, as well as other focal points around the garden. A wire gazebo with a statue underneath forms the main focal point from the house. Wire work frames are also used as supports for climbers and to frame stone steps down to the lawn.

Formal planting now exists around the existing central water feature and emphasises focal points such as the tops of steps, statues and the wire work. There is also informal planting throughout the garden to further enhance its appearance.
