Large Gardens

I define a large garden as anything over about 20m in length. With these gardens,
it’s important to create an element of mystery, enclosure, secrecy or intimacy –
the size has to be ‘tamed’ in some way. In larger gardens, I find it’s important
to ensure that the garden unfolds in a compulsive, interesting way. Paths, screens and strong shapes are very important in unifying a large garden and take on extra prominence. 

Damerham – intrusive slope near house
Winchester 1 – another intrusive slope near house
Winchester 2 – Dealing with steps
Dibden Purlieu – a wide but not deep rear garden
Brockenhurst – creating an attractive poolside environment
Central Winchester – creating a manageable kitchen garden
East Hampshire – creating flow around the garden
Milton Keynes – a bold, modernist approach
Sway – taming a sloping garden
Southampton – creating intimacy in an overlooked garden
