Fairlight End

This 3 acre garden is set on a steep slope and has wonderful views over the Sussex Weald. The site was a challenge as the land falls from one side by the house, 50 metres to the bottom

Chris brought in Ian Kitson who designed the curvaceous Corten steel borders to flow alongside the rhythm of the surrounding countryside. Those close to the house, with an ancient Cherry Tree at the axis, are more formal and also feature Corten sculptures to give structure in the spring and winter. Informally clipped groups of hornbeam, hawthorn, holly and yew are scattered through the garden, their shapes reflecting those of hedgerows and tree canopies in the borrowed landscape beyond the garden. Extensive meadows, helped along by hay from Great Dixter, now contain a diverse collection of wild flowers.
