Peace To Eat – A Rural Windswept Garden With Magnificent Views

Tucked away in a lovely Sussex village is a family house looking out on beautiful pastoral views to the West and then to the South East peaceful views of their pond. The aim of the design in this cases was to pull together the different areas of the garden making each area flow into the next whilst also providing some tucked away areas to sit and contemplate and dream or alternatively to have large spontaneous al fresco meals. There was also the small matter of making an attractive entrance to the conservatory that two large Labradors could charge down as they headed for the hills.

The problem with views is that they come with winds! So tucked in on the North west side of the garden we created an enclosed terrace . The combination of the soft orange farmhouse bricks with the deep reds of the Penstemon garnet and the warm oranges of the day lilies creates a feeling of warmth. The spreading fig tree in the back with the classical statue hiding in its shade...More

Space to eat. The fig tree was part of the old planting in the area but was saved and pruned so that the outline of the houses beynd could be broken up. There is a small Judas tree tucked in the corner to the left of the statue that will one day break up the profile of the wall more nad knit this space with the tree outline beyond.

To break up the large space and to centralise the sitting area I have created a panel of herring bone bricks - Old Farmhouse . They have been pointed in to avoid too many weeds growing between the bricks. The stone is an Indian sandstone. Photography by Tasha Bee - www.tashabee.com

The key feature here is the trunk of the old cedar that came down in the 1987 hurricane. Silvered and old it is the perfect spot for candles, wine glasses or bird seed. Photography by Tasha Bee - www.tashabee.com

Views across to the pond. This area of paving was specifically designed for the less windy days when you can sit and look either at the pond or over to the downs in the distance. The soft curves of the design blend with the rural setting and sweep one on gently to new areas. Photography by Tasha Bee - www.tashabee.com
