The site for this garden dropped over eight metres in height from front to back, making this a very challenging site to work on. Extensive terracing was needed, at first linear/formal to match the (new build) house design, then moving into informal curvilinear with softer materials.

The south facing site on free-draining chalk soil required a plant palette that loved these conditions. Mediterranean herbs and sub-shrubs were used to the upper terraces, with more moisture loving plants in the bottom corner where a pond was located.
