Hook Norton Cottage Style garden makeover

Hook Norton Cottage Style garden makeover

Hook Norton Cottage style garden makeover designed in the early part of 2017 and constructed through the latter part of 2017 and into 2018. This garden located close to the village centre has been one of our biggest and most enjoyable projects builds to date. The design and planting scheme was an absolute joy and pleasure to create for the client. Thankfully the client was after a garden that was more heavy planting than hard landscaping. Yet the hard landscaping bought the garden together.

A south facing garden on a downward slope with the need to make maintenance easier and in time to work on the garden room principle. This will become more evident once the garden matures over time. The new garden features the following features:

  • Circular lawn with radiating curved pathway and curved beds in the upper garden
  • Border edging with Lavender Hidcote to create a fragrant hedge and to attract Bees
  • Zoned planting schemes to garden with Hot Color plants to one side and Cool Color planting to the other
  • Feature trees to provide the garden with height with coloured foliage, berries and flowers and to encourage birds
  • Feature boundary trellis work to echo the overall design of the garden theme
  • Narrow Granite sett paving providing access around the entire garden
  • Two tier pool with Waterfall, planted with pond and marginal plants
  • The lower garden area with a feature seating/viewpoint overlooking the valley beyond
  • Further planting to provide interest from insects and create movement with the use of grasses to stimulate the senses.
  • The client has added further features like birdhouse/table and feeders
  • The garden now benefits with a bespoke greenhouse added post garden completion for the growing and overwintering of any tender garden plants

Nicholas Macartney

Nicholas the Owner of Alexander John and has been in the gardening industry since horticultural college. Nicholas meets all new customers and creates the garden designs, planting schemes and looks after the admin side of the business. Nicholas does get involved with the actual planting and overall maintenance when required. He confesses himself as a Plantaholic and is often referred to as a Walking Talking plant encyclopedia by clients and colleagues. He has had a long fascination and interest in plants and gardens from an early age. Creation of planting schemes that stir the senses yet stay in control on client brief as much as possible. He also has a wide portfolio of suppliers for landscaping materials based here in the UK and will often source bespoke products or made to order items as finishing touches for garden dressing.

The plants are usually the primary and dominant aspect of any installation that ties the garden together and plants are often sourced from some major UK growers and small independent nurseries. On the gardens requiring Instant Impact planting then plants and trees will be sourced from Italy, France, Germany, Holland and Belgium. Nicks favourite gardens to design are small gardens as they offer the opportunity to pack a lot of interest into a small space.

Nicholas has a few favourite plants he would love to have in his own garden but due to climatic conditions is unable to grow them. When he has the ability to put these into a clients garden he excels in convincing the client this is a must-have plant.  We have a large network of related trades we work and liaises on the garden builds and installations with the planting schemes and then ongoing maintenance schedules should the clients require this service. We are happy to answer gardening questions or meet for just a catchup on chores the client should be doing in the garden whatever the season.

We are always available to provide a FREE initial garden consultation to discuss ideas on a garden space or simply just how a garden border planting scheme could be improved. If any of the above strikes a chord of interest with you and you would like to discuss with your garden then simply get in touch and Contact us at the bottom of this page. Happy Gardening.
