Framing the view -
a new garden in Dorset
A newly extended house set in the beautiful Dorset countryside needed to be anchored within its surroundings. Maintaining and framing the stunning views around the house was the major criteria for the project. A terrace was put in with borders sweeping round it to create a more intimate area in which to sit and enjoy the views beyond. The mixed planting has been designed to frame the terrace whilst not obstructing the view. Perennials and shrubs with long flowering seasons have been used to keep the borders looking good throughout the summer and on into the autumn. Young trees have been put in to add vertical interest and a gate has been set into the existing hedge to draw the eye out beyond the garden.
