Walled Garden | Listed

The Cottage | Listed Georgian Coach House

Location | Chichester

Following the refurbishment on this listed Georgian Coach House, the focus was placed on the restoration of its sun drenched walled garden.

The space was divided into two separate areas, a lower tier with a Mediterranean gravel garden and an upper tier with a contemporary perennial garden. A gorgeous bespoke Loggia, the work of master carpenter Adam Pochee, frames the southern edge of the garden providing a screened space for garden tools. 

To prevent the ‘winter blues’, the garden has a high percentage of evergreen shrubs providing a fuller look during the winter period whilst creating the perfect companionship for the display of blooms from early Spring till late Autumn. The mixture of native and non-native flowering species creates a haven for pollinators. A series of pleached Lime trees running along the Western flank talk to the opposite walls creating a feeling of fresh enclosure whilst adding privacy during the warmer months.
