Rebecca Smith - Garden design & consultancy

Fernhurst, West Sussex

This long-running project of updating and modernising a large, traditional 5 acre garden took many years. The family were keen gardeners and wanted to restore the garden to it's original Victorian layout. Mature specimen trees, including a fine Cedar of Lebanon, provided stunning framework for the renewed planting which was chosen to thrive in the heavy acid soil. The herbaceous borders were extended and the planting within updated to include more annuals and shrubs for a longer season of interest. The large Grade II listed timber glasshouse was restored and then used by the owners for propagation and tender plants. A fruit cage and vegetable garden were created to allow the family to grow much of what they eat daily.
