Synopsis
The garden is planted on two levels, with the more formal structure around 3 sides of the Regency house on the lower level which forms and enclosed foreground to the rolling Herefordshire countryside beyond, and a clever collection of mass planted perennials and grasses of differing heights, textures and colour, which give all year interest. The box parterre garden is a modern version with softly sculpted waves of hedging interspersed with grasses, which billow in the wind. On the higher level, the south side of the house, the land was raised to form a level terrace that screens the entrance and there is a walled garden which leads to massed herbaceous planting and massed 6 foot high miscanthus grass which hides the swimming pool from view. This is an easy maintenance garden due to the planting design incorporating large blocks of herbaceous planting with a high percentage of grasses, and lends a very dramatic textural effect when viewed from the first floor rooms of the house.
