CCLA: A Summer Retreat

Summer Gardens

Inspired by the ethos of the Arts and Crafts Movement, the garden embraces the values of simplicity, elegance, style and craftsmanship. It is designed to be either a separate garden room adjoined to a larger space or an entity on its own.

A raised bespoke summerhouse serves as a place to relax and reflect whilst offering an additional perspective to the garden, as do two hand-crafted benches.

The planting is influenced by the naturalistic style, with freedom of growth within the borders. An informal marriage of tapestry-style planting celebrates the abundance of nature, contained by orderly geometric shapes in the form of boundary hedging and dry stone walling, a demonstration of British craftsmanship.
