Large, traditional gardens
Designing large English country and traditional gardens
Having a large garden gives you the opportunity to let your imagination run wild – but it also brings with it the problem of keeping it looking good all year. The larger the garden, the more work it will need, and a more informal plan might be a practical solution for a garden that looks great but is relatively easy to maintain.
The traditional English country garden is a riot of colour, an organic space that gives the impression that it planted itself. While it can take some initial planning to create this illusion, it will be less work in the long run than, for example, a more formal garden that requires constant weeding and pruning. When we design large gardens we use the same principles as we would for small, it’s just a question of scale.
