An exciting project based in Surrey. A beautiful Georgian walled garden that has been cleared ready for full re-design and planting. New paths have been laid as per the original Georgian design. The walled garden needs to be a multi functioning space, so it has been designed into smaller zones.
The garden will be developed over time.
Large pieces of topiary provide a sculptural view and will help anchor the space. The two reflection pools will bring light into the garden whilst also creating visual division between the orchard and the more open grassed entertaining area.
Growing and education garden
There is the opportunity to build an exceptional vegetable garden which will provide plenty of food and the chance to teach about propagation and growing. 600mm raised planters will be made of air dried oak which over time will turn a beautiful silver colour. The extra height will make weeding and working on the beds much easier.
Physical contact with microbes in the soil, Mycobacterium vaccae, has been scientifically proven to have a very positive effect on the levels of serotonin in the brain, improving mental and emotional wellbeing.
