Farmhouse Garden

Farmhouse Garden

This garden sits at the heart of a large, Cheshire brick farmhouse. The client came to us for a garden that would serve many purposes. This includes a drive, as well as an area where the children can safely play. They also requested an open lawn, and a terrace area with a firepit where the adults can socialise. They then wanted trees to act as a screen and soften the impact of the house from the roadside.

Planting 


This garden was divided into sections. The main garden is circular, with low box hedge borders and box balls within the lawn. There is also mixed planting with a pleached hornbeam. The next area follows a simpler design, with a row of Catalpa trees, planted with Cat-mint against the boundary wall.

Design 


Due to the size of the house, the garden was divided into a series of different styles for different uses. All areas were wider than deep. From here is a lawn, bordered with hot colours of herbaceous plants. The simple garden leads through the arch and into the box front parterre garden that is completed with 64 white rose shrubs.

Having decided to create a special look to a farm courtyard I employed the services of Taylor Barnes. From the beginning the venture was exciting, and they were enthusiastic and creative. The design drawn was amazing and when it came to fruition I was more than pleased, it was every bit perfect.
After meeting with several garden designers we decided to choose Taylor Barnes because of their combination of design and building skills. Paul and his team were very pleasant to have around the house and were able to include last minute changes as the new garden evolved. We were so pleased with the outcome that we asked them to landscape our front garden last year as well. 
I had engaged Taylor Barnes to design and build our garden at home in the UK. They took our brief, but rather than slavishly follow it, they emboldened and embellished it with their own ideas which complemented our initial thoughts. The result has been a fantastic garden that has given us 8 years of pleasure.
From our very first contact to the moment our garden was finished we have been delighted with the work. We felt that they really wanted us to enjoy our garden and were excited by the project which gave us great confidence and belief. Our garden is now an extension of our living room and looks so much better than we could have ever anticipated.
