This was a large project in Dorsington where Lucy designed all the landscaping surrounding the house. This included the driveway with avenue of Liquidambar trees, turning circle, entertaining space, fire pit area and wildlife pond. The planting was designed for year round interest and included over 60 trees. The tree species were chosen to provide spring blossom, summer fruit, autumn leaf colour and winter bark and berries. These trees along with the extensive hedgerows which were reinstated will offer food and habitats for native wildlife. The pond will also support the local ecosystem too.
The landscape design provides stunning sight lines out to the surrounding views and enhances the beautiful new house. Paving and planting colours were chosen to work well with the Cotswold Stone. Of particular note, the parasol form London Plane trees create a fun covered walkway through the outdoor entertaining area and are always a talking point!
