Open to all aspects
Heavy loam with clay in places
Existing FeaturesThe three acre Hill Farms sits on one of the highest points near Framlingham in Suffolk, surrounded by open fields and the garden was heavily partitioned by conifer and evergreen hedges. The site comprised a natural pond, a large open paddock, converted outbuildings and an old tennis court in much need of restoration.
Having lived surrounded by dense evergreen hedges for many years, our client was keen to open up the garden to the beautiful Suffolk countryside beyond and take full advantage of the gently rolling landscape and rural views.
Textural planting was chosen to blend harmoniously with the nearby fields of wheat and barley that surround the garden providing movement and sound as the plants catch the gentle summer breeze.
Our client wanted to enjoy the newly opened up garden for peaceful relaxation and a number of seating areas were positioned to maximise the sun at various times of the day. The garden is now a beautiful space, traditional in style and completely at one with its surrounding landscape.
