When the owner had completed a sympathetic restoration of the listed 18th Century house, which included building a contemporary kitchen extension, he turned his attention to designing and building a suitable garden on a low budget. The principles of conservation employed in the house restoration were extended into the garden. Walls were repaired using lime mortar and materials found on site were saved and reused in the hard landscaping, reducing the cost and also the carbon footprint of the build. The lawn area remains unmown until the end of June so that the self-seeded oxeye daisies complement the informal, pollinator friendly planting.
