Kentish Cottage in Meopham
The owners of this beautiful cottage wanted an initial concept masterplan for their new garden design, with a view to implementing the design in phases. The garden brief for this garden was to create a sense of arrival to the front of the house, with the relocation of the front door, set within it's own courtyard with a modern raised wooden parterre and existing pond.
To the rear of the house a more formal layout was requested, with a fine rectangular lawn surrounded by wide tree-lined walkways and a mix of shrub and perennial borders - leading to a potager garden complete with greenhouse and potting shed.
To the side of the house looking out to the fields and the borrowed landscape there is a sunken fire pit area and a survivor of the great storm of 1987 - a magnificent Walnut tree now surrounded by a new wildflower meadow.
The construction and planting of the garden was completed in time for a wedding celebration, which was to take place in the gardens.
