What's hot in the world of horticulture.....
I have been really busy recently but I managed to squeeze in a day off today and visited Goddards House and Garden - the home of Terrys chocolatier Noel Terry. I was not disappointed and the visit highlighted a very important point.
The home and garden are in perfect harmony with each other which is no accident as the garden designer, George Millstone, worked very closely with the architect, Walter Brierley to bring the arts and crafts style to life in this place. Garden designers understand that a garden should sit well in its setting and so the style of house is crucial to the style of the garden. So, very often garden designers will work alongside architects when new house builds are planned or even when a new conservatory or extension is planned. This makes perfect logical sense and, often, the garden designer can suggest the correct placement of doors and details in connection with build to make the most of the garden.
When planning a change to your house, remember to think of the garden and bear in mind that Jo Manfredi-Hamer Garden Design is waiting to work with your architect! If you already have your extension, we can advise on how to redesign your garden to make the most of your space.
