CLIENT: Professional couple with a young family
DESIGNER: Charlotte Murrell FdSc
LOCATION: Village near Salisbury, Wiltshire
SIZE: 2600 m2
STATUS: Tree planting completed, garden to be built 2016
BRIEF: Produce a garden design and tree planting scheme for phased implementation, linking the garden to the landscape, making the most of the fantastic views from the property, through use of trees and sculpting the land.
ELEMENTS: A formal sunken courtyard at the rear of the house, including seating areas and water features, with protection from strong winds which blow in across the Salisbury plane. The remaining garden will be gently sculpted using sweeping terraces of lawn, creating a gentle transition from the house, through the garden to the adjoining agricultural land beyond.
