The new paved areas and planting complement the Georgian house with similar balance and grace. They make use of surviving mature walnut and Indian Bean trees, and old climbing roses. Materials were chosen to harmonise with the existing handsome brickwork of the house and garden walls.

The owners are keen gardeners, so the planting was developed through extensive consultation in order to provide much-loved plants as well as introducing species and varieties new to them; tired planting was replaced or revived, and ample new borders give room for development.
