Maili Felton Garden Design


Little Poltimore, Devon

The clients totally rebuilt this bungalow which is set in a lovely valley in Devon with stunning views. They wanted to retain the existing pond and lots of lawn space for visiting grandchildren, whilst creating a garden which would sit comfortably in the landscape. A large crescent shaped border was created using grasses and perennials which also acts to enclose the lawn. The pond was slightly enlarged and the edges softened with marginal plants. Borders around the terrace were created and planted with small evergreen shrubs and herbaceous perennials. In a sheltered sunny spot to the east of the house , the client requested a Mediterranean gravel garden, where standard Olive trees were underplanted with Lavender.
