A new country garden

By Cheshire garden designer Robert S. Frier. A windswept, poorly drained site is transformed into a formal sunken garden on a grand scale.

The client wanted a garden in scale and proportion with the land and property, a productive area, a formal garden, a lake and swimming pond. A dynamic radial design was chosen which incorporates an extensive maze made of yew.

Here the sunken garden is finished looking fresh after a torrential storm.The garden is planted with tough low growing shrubs for a virtually maintenance free garden.
