large family garden


Landscape design and garden design mean the same thing, it’s just that larger properties often ask for a ‘Landscape designer’ rather than ‘Garden designer’, but we all work to the same principles.

The owners of a listed 17th century farmhouse set in 3 acres of green belt land found their garden uninviting and daunting. They wanted a Landscape designer to help with the design so asked Rhoda Maw Garden Design.

Therefore they needed a manageable family garden together with interesting areas which could be used for community events.

The concept of the garden evolved from the existing understated entrance to the property, hidden from the road by large hedges that provide glimpses of what could lay beyond. This, together with the client’s love of art, the local woodland and views of the countryside inspired the concept of a journey of discovery, with the eye continually being drawn somewhere else – beckoning you on to explore the different areas.
