Modern Meadow Garden

Harmony and simplicity

Nature is doing its best in our ‘modern meadow’ garden, a bee and butterfly nectar pot of native wildflowers and grasses given composition with clipped yew buttresses, pittosporum domes and architectural birch trees. An integral central paved terrace of sawn sandstone reached via a mown path provides a sunny retreat and entertainment space right in the heart of the meadow. A bespoke circular log-store made from weathered Corten steel provides the focal point, the logs serving as a bug hotel for overwintering pollinators.

Our modern meadow garden was short-listed as a finalist in the prestigious Society of Garden Designers (SGD) awards 2020 and featured in Gardens Illustrated, April 2021.
