The modern detached house is hewn out of the steeply sloping valley, with a steep cliff edge to the north and east.
The irregularly shaped south facing garden is situated to the east of the house and is on 3 different levels, covering an area of about 15m by 15m. The usable area is about 12m by 8m.
A secret, ornamental wildlife garden, full of scented plants and native wild flowers for insects. There’s a hidden pergola and seating, draped with climbers, with views down the valley. The structure is defined by a curving path and fruiting, evergreen shrubs.
Lots of wildlife, lots of scent, privacy, and a sense of seclusion.
The colour scheme is pinks, purples, reds and white.
There’s no access to the lower level, so it is covered with low-maintenance and shrubs, with a small specimen ornamental tree. The rock face is laid with erosion control roll and planted with non-competitive fescue grass for binding the soil and native wild flowers.
Below the house is a steep slope, covering an area of about 8m by 3m. Replacing the Buddleia at the top will be a colourful hedge for privacy, with relaxed planting below of ferns and other woodland plants.
Scented, full sun or part shade.
Fragrant plants, evergreen shrubs, perennial insect-friendly wild flowers…
