Modern Country Living

18/04/2019 By HC

Modern country living embraces many styles & sensibilities. With a vast & varied portfolio of country gardens we have gathered together a selection to share with you. We hope these inspire you to start thinking about your own. A home and garden should feed the soul, be a direct reflection of your lifestyle and promote wellness all year round. Lots of our clients’ projects have been published in books and magazines over the years and 2019 has some nice surprises in store continuing this. First up is

Lakeside is all about hygge. This modern country property has a Scandinavian vibe. It is full of life and vitality, and no longer has any boundaries between inside and out. Now at Easter the Paper Birch trees get decorated in the Swedish tradition Påskris.

Last Autumn we added masses of bulbs to the property and this is what the client kindly reported

I just wanted to thank you guys and team for all our amazing bulbs. I have taken so many photos, but none of them come close to capturing how beautiful they truly are… a myriad of colours, shapes, heights and textures.. it feels like every day something new pops out and some of the alliums are literally only a breath away from opening too! I feel totally spoilt. The hydrangeas and the grasses around the fire pit  had a massive growth spurt last year and I think the garden is really settling in to itself now. It gives us all pleasure all year round… except perhaps my neighbours who have to endure Sonnys skateboard on the deck… half pipe next project 😂

Thank you once again
