This stately garden design is part of a larger estate situaded in the rural landscape of Denbigshire in North Wales. This part of the estate between the stables and walled garden was almost hidden.
The garden was in need of the new impulse that Andy Sturgeon gave to it. The British garden and landscape architect succeeded in giving this part of the estate a new glance.
Andy Sturgeon belongs to the top of garden and landscape architecture in Britain. Andy has many striking garden design with his signature on it. Many art designs are in his design for gardens most of them he designed himself. In most cases he uses wood, iron or lead.
He opened up vistas to connect the stables and walled garden and projected a water rill out to join with the existing gardens beyond. It was essential that this new garden respected both the architecture and the rural landscape and he chose to create a gravel garden that relied predominantly on planting.
