Countryside 4-acre Garden, Grove, Kent, UK
Countryside 4-acre garden for a large property to be developed over several years in stages
Within the Kent countryside sits a large country house and fields. A countryside 4-acre garden, will developed in a number of stages. First, the separate cosmetic beauty business will have a new client garden for wellbeing. A new driveway entrance and drive will lead up to the house with a separate area for parking for the business. The entrance to the countryside 4-acre garden is through a set of double gates with brick pillars and brick walling. Trees will line the driveway up to the house. All existing outbuildings on the countryside 4-acre garden will be removed and repurposed. Working alongside the architect and the large extension to the house, a new family entertaining garden will be created leading off from the bi-fold kitchen doors. Abundant planting close to the house will give a cottage-style feel with a modern twist. A new swimming pool and outbuilding with changing rooms and entertaining space will be created before the garden becomes more wild in feel with an orchard to match the surrounding landscape, as well as wild flower meadows, a new lake with duck island, a small woodland and mooring house.
This is an exciting opportunity to create a countryside 4-acre garden from two fields, while taking inspiration from the surrounding flora and fauna to create a countryside 4-acre garden with a real sense of place and space.
The clients are very keen to attract wildlife in to the garden, and a mix of native and cultivated plants will create a rich biodiversity while also being a garden for sustainability and covering many environmental matters. Land drains will be added to prevent flooding. All materials will be locally sourced and local craftsmen and women will be commissioned to create sculpture, fencing, wooden structures and more. The views across the valley are breath-taking and this garden becomes part of that view.
