15th Century Cottage Garden
Rebuilding the terrace
A sympathetic design was essential for the dining terrace of this 15th century hall house in Hampshire. Yorkstone paving, red bricks and flintwork all brought instant atmosphere back to the garden with sweeping steps that can be navigated much more easily, and a herringbone path flanked by green borders leading the eye and the tray of tea towards the dining area.
Much of the original stone was reused in various ways and a mossy planter has been turned into a water trough with a simple copper pipe trickling out of the flintwork.
