The Claims Guys: A Very English Garden

Artisan Gardens

Did you know...

  • Constructing the half-dome focal point in the rear wall in drystone, one of the most difficult shapes to achieve in the medium, was a real test of skill and experience by specialist contractor Andrew Loudon
  • Box balls, cubes and low hedging help anchor the looser planting that surrounds them
  • A particularly effective, contrasting plant association places upright foxglove and phlox flowers below large twin standard evergreen Prunus placed either side of the half dome against the back wall

About the garden

A celebration of craftsmanship and tradition with inspiration drawn from the Arts and Crafts Movement, this garden is designed to stand the test of time both physically and aesthetically, and to simply be beautiful.

The focal point is a dry stone, half-domed niche, displaying the skill of the craftsman, offering a sheltered view of the sumptuous, jewel-toned planting.
