This Chelsea garden was a potted version of the English landscape, with its quilt of fields and hedgerows. It is divided into two sections: the Courtyard and the Front Garden. The whole garden works as a mixture of informal naturalism and formal simplicity. As the grasses grow up over the season they undermine the linear formality. Viewed from within, the landscape is framed in every direction, by the oak uprights. The Front Garden is criss-crossed with straight paths made of granite setts, to reflect the materials of the house, which is mainly pale stone and brick. The blackened reflecting pool sits at the heart of the garden.
