Minimalist garden design with an English garden twist for a holiday let farm complex
Minimalist garden design. An exciting project. Outbuildings of a farm, comprising stable, garden courtyard, brick barn, cartlodge and brooder house, are becoming holiday lets. The brief is to maintain a farm building outlook. Separate outdoor spaces define each property. Windows and doors open onto the main garden courtyard and the large parking area. Old farm equipment, permanent and semi-permanent hedging, lawns and planted containers add interest. The brooder house becomes a swimming pool complex. Hard standing and planting link this building to the main farm complex.
The ground behind the cartlodge is higher than the doors and windows. Cutting into the ground with the use of retaining walls and soft planting, make the area accessible to all. Soft ambient lighting lights pathways and some planting. The main farmhouse overlooks the brick barn and stable. A privacy screen of native natural hedging is added.
