This is a new property high on the top of a hill overlooking some magnificent views of the landscape. With the house being so tall we felt we needed to 'ancor' the property to the ground. We did this by adding some large trees, groupings of trees and for color and texture we used shrubs and perrenils.
To create a 'sense of arrival' we designed a post and rail edge. We used the cultured stone that appears on the house and sourced locally cut Larch timber. The live edges were kept on the timber for a natural look. The larch posts were spanned between the pillars. Colorful and scented plants were added to the clients side of the fence.
Along the building edge we planted a montone scheme of white and green.

In the center of the circle we added topsoil to create berms or hills. This landforming echo's the greater landscape as well as creating some privacy from the passing road.
On the hills we planted a grove of 'Whitespire' Birch trees and underplanted them with 5000 bulbs of Mascari and 'Heavenly White' Narcissus.
In the rear garden we designed a bluestone pathway that sits on the edge of the hill. Along the path to the courtyard garden you pass Servicebbery trees and plantings.
