Naturalistic Garden, Kent

A garden bringing nature to the doorstep.

Nestled in the Weald of Kent, amongst majestic oak and beech woodland, this large country garden draws on its extraordinary landscape to seamlessly link the house with the land.

With space required for entertaining and relaxation, this garden uses nature-inspired planting to sensitively unify and integrate an outdoor kitchen and new swimming pool into historic farmland. Planting anchors and soften these important features into the natural landscape – from many angles they are screened completely.

Expansive lawns have been sensitively framed and divided; new vistas open through woodland onto grassy plains; mounds of grasses and rich, textural shrub planting weave new routes through the garden. Perennial borders packed with eupatorium, fennel, persicaria, verbena are alive with pollinators. Rich woodland, perennial and meadow habitats support local wildlife.

Our aspiration has been to leave a feeling that we have worked with what surrounds the house.
