About: The Dairy house garden design is a converted barn nestled in the beautiful rolling Cheshire countryside.  The original garden functioned as both front and back garden with the house only having one aspect to the front elevation.  

Using a dry stone wall and naturalistic planting, we divided the space to create a concealed driveway. This made for a more secluded garden perfect for relaxing and entertaining. 

The real star of the show is the stunning views over the Cheshire hills.  It was vital not to interrupt them but rather lead the eye out  and integrate them with the manmade landscape.  Using  perspective and the perennial meadow the garden does this successfully by blurring the boundary and creating that connection. 

Our clients wanted a space they could enjoy in all weathers so we created a stunning Oak and Cedar pavilion which features a micro cement rendered garden chimney, an outdoor TV and a bespoke designer concrete kitchen from local artisans Da Vinci Designer Concrete who also created the planters, dining table and cantilevered fire table.

The new perennialist style borders feature some beautiful multi-stem Amelanchiers and a Acer Griseum.  A matrix of Sesleria autumnalis is balanced with a colourful mix through the seasons including perennials such as Salvia, Sedum, Achillea, Nepeta and Stachys.
