The Old Vicarage Garden


We were asked to help to transform and revitalise a large country garden, parts of which had become neglected over time, and to create a garden that could be delivered in phases through a series of different garden rooms – each with a distinct character whilst unifying into a coherent whole. Our clients wanted to have distinct spaces in which to garden, relax, and enjoy.


This garden blends traditional and contemporary elements that work harmoniously with the Old Vicarage and its renovated interior. To date the first phases have delivered a generous terrace to the rear of the property, a new driveway with evergreen and seasonal planting to screen cars from view, and a new Herb Garden – all blending artfully with the house and its setting.
