The landscape project at Lower Hill House was one of our biggest projects to date spanning over a year’s worth of work. We were contacted by our client to work off a design they had commissioned and which we tweaked to make everything flow seamlessly within the space.
After excavating 100 tons of soil from the bank with structural concrete walls in place, we set about facing with a local limestone. Laying over 120 tons of limestone we were able to create numerous spaces which worked seamlessly with the planting. Features included over 46 individual lights set within the stone so the garden could be enjoyed at night. A green oak pergola was built within the garden which contrasted beautifully with the stonework.
We also installed a reclaimed stone trough water feature which sat below a copper pipe trickling water into it. The garden was then finished off with a wildflower meadow on the banks above the wall and the garden planted by the client a keen gardener with an understanding of right plant for the right place.
