    Type: Formal Regency Garden Design
    Area: Pittville, Cheltenham
    The garden:
    This grade II listed property is of historical importance located Pittville and the park in Cheltenham, combine elegant regency architecture with an open garden.

    Honouring classical garden forms

    The brief:
    This house is a Grade II listed property and it is of historical importance in the past of Pittville and Pittville Park in Cheltenham. The clients were interested in being sympathetic to the history and the building by giving the property the garden it deserved. We commenced a report of the building and its fascinating history. With this information, the garden design evolved using traditional products and planting to give this garden a timeless feel for the house to sit in.


    The garden is quite a love… I go and refresh myself every now and then, and then come back to Solitary Coolness.

    The design:
    There were two spectacular existing trees in the garden that dwarfed the surroundings. The garden had to be designed with these in mind and every aspect scaled between these trees and the house. Simple yet bold lines create a regency tone. Traditional Forest of Dean stone establish a feeling that the house always had this garden but fresh character.

    A complex planting design with many areas of contrasting planting schemes nodded to the history of the house and that it was primarily built for the nurseryman that planted Pittville Park. The palette provided year-round interest and incredible vibrancies of colour.

    The basement wall of the house was moved to flood light into the lower rooms and create a mini- garden as picture frames from these lower windows. A calming but elegant garden has been created in a style that even Jane Austin herself would have loved.
