The Arts and Crafts Garden

The main lawn and flowers beds in the arts and crafts garden

This sloping garden in West Littleton was designed for a keen gardener and an enthusiastic vegetable grower. She counteracted the slope with terracing and created little seating areas to chase the sun around the garden. Her client wanted to add her own Gertrude Jeykll style planting, so it seemed only natural that she take inspiration from one of her design heroes, Sir Edwyn Lutyens, for the hard landscaping, in particular his distinctive circular stone steps.
