Our project in Swanage presented a great opportunity to feature locally sourced materials in an area of outstanding historical beauty.
The garden had become overgrown and required drastic measures to address issues regarding levels, usable space and unmanaged planting. The side access to the garden was unusable and somewhat dangerous. The grassed land to the west of the site was mounded and was unusable as a lawn space.
Despite the various issues regarding the gardens existing layout, the site held a large amount of potential. Historical rooftops to the east of the site created a picturesque view looking outward. To the west, a large historical church towered above the village.
