Tixover, Rutland

This rural riverside home required a thoughtful touch to bring together the picturesque countryside setting and sloping garden.

Incorporating an existing garden studio and decked terrace, tiered timber borders and steps lead down to the river. A new paved area provides space to sit by the water. Inspired by the setting, the planting combines moisture-loving plants at the water’s edge with soft, natural-looking perennials and shrubs closer to the house.

From the homeowners…

“Nicola listened to our ideas, limited as they were, took them away and came back with fantastic designs for our new garden, including all the hard landscaping and artistic impressions of the final outcomes. It was way more than we ever anticipated and we immediately moved to the next stage.”
