Somerby, Leicestershire

With far-reaching views over the Leicestershire countryside, retaining the open vistas and borrowed landscape were key considerations of this design.

Soft curves and flowing lines now disguise the long and thin shape of the garden, and help lead visitors through the space. A generous lawn helps to retain the open view, which is framed by trees. A meandering pathway through cottage and countryside-inspired planting now provides a more intimate route down the garden.

From the homeowner…

To anyone seeking a great result from a professional garden designer I would have no hesitation in recommending Nicola Oakey Design. From conception to final planting Nicola has been a joy to work with and the final result has far exceeded my expectations.”
