2001 - 2002
Formerly part of the grounds of Claverton Manor, the adopted garden of Claverton Manor Farmhouse includes some of Somerset's most important remnants of Jacobean garden architecture.
A new design was commissioned to reinforce the relationship of the Manor Farmhouse with its adopted garden. The concept is centred on the rotation of the symetry between the house and the existing historic garden.
The former terrace built in neo-Victorian style was removed and lines of natural stone paving and new dry stone walls were extended orthogonally from the house into the outside space. The disitnctive Bath stone of the house determines the pallette of materials and plants used in the new design.
