A blend of traditional materials with a modern twist
Our client’s property here is a stunning period barn conversion with a very contemporary design style. The design team worked in conjunction with the clients to design the outdoor space. Colours and material types were selected, traditional Green Oak was used to create the decked terrace and the boardwalk to match the silvering of the barn cladding. Reclaimed hop poles were positioned symmetrically at the end of each planting row, linked with single strand wire, white Portland stone and render was used to create vibrant terraces. The herbaceous planting, planted in linear rows at 40 degrees to the house walls provides green bands of foliage and varying flower colour displays during their seasonal periods.
The initial concept design concluded we would maintain an agricultural flavour with elements of traditional materials but used in a modern style. It was decided that a large feature would be created outside the main window from the internal living space, a decked terrace would be created to function as a external dining area, we linked the main feature and the decked terrace with a boardwalk which steps through the rows of herbaceous planting.
The entire scheme was great fun to build, our teams spent in excess of 4 months creating this section of the garden, other areas of the grounds were landscaped as well.
