Cornish Rectory: Phase II

Cornwall Garden Design: Cornish Rectory Garden Design, 2014.

A garden design in Cornwall involving second phase works at a grade II * listed Rectory. Designing around and with a new pool and pool house, sweeping stone walls were inserted to break the garden levels and introduce a bone structure. A circular walled garden has been lightly perched, the stone mix fluid expressing life beyond being a wall.

The process involved a selection of flowers, colours and textures that work with the climate, seasons and environment to create a garden design suitable to it’s Cornwall locality. Purple and pink floral hues and beds contrast with the yellows and greens of the luscious lawns and grasses. The curvature of the grassy path leads the eye along and past the stone walls to the blooming of vibrant meadow flowers on the surroundings of the lawn.  A gravel drive with borders either side and clipped evergreens lead up to the house. They create line of colour that lead up to the grey stone walls of the rectory, giving the impression of a private and sheltered place. The building itself is left to stand alone in with the surrounding gardens not over bearing or diminishing it’s grandeur but complimenting and illuminating it further.

Conrad Batten’s Cornwall garden design service operates throughout North, South, East and West of the county and further afield across the UK.
