Modern Rustic Garden, Alderley EdgeA complete garden redesign for a lovely couple in Alderley Edge with a brief inspired by the trendy and rustic Soho Farmhouse! The clients wanted to create a series of outdoor spaces with entertaining for their family and friends at the heart of the design and styled in a relaxed way with natural materials and beautiful planting.
The first area is by the new indoor pool with firepits, seating and sun loungers. A Mediterranean planting style is paired with gravelled areas and reclaimed york stone paths with herringbone brick details to create a relaxed feel. Mature, characterful Olive trees add instant impact. Plenty of evergreen plants such as Rosemary, Euphorbia and Pittosporum are used to ensure some year round interest. Beautiful salt glazed statement pots and urns are clustered together around the space and lighting is used throughout.
The second space is an outdoor kitchen with built in fireplace, BBQ and log store. A large dining set is placed on reclaimed York stone and a brick path with herbs dotted in gravel leads up to it from the pool side area. There is also a sofa set by the outdoor fireplace and bespoke planters painted in Farrow and Ball with lollipops to mark the patio doors. Raised brick beds separate the space from the large lawn and are filled with traditional cottage garden planting including Roses, Peonies and Lavender. A ground level border adjacent is edged with Box and filled with Tulips, Alliums and Clematis on wire obelisks.
