Project Details

Having previously used Jo Alderson Phillips on another project, the clients approached Jo again to design this 6 acre site on one of the highest spots in the Chilterns. Orchard House or Chiltern Estate as it is otherwise known, is one of our long term projects.

Two large man made ponds already dominated the front garden together with a substantial woodland area planted within the last 30 years but which had never been managed or thinned. Beech trees, so characteristic of the Chiterns had been butchered above and below ground by previous builders and contractors as the drive was laid and ponds created.Read more…

However this long term project is really too big to describe so please do take a look at our online book to discover the secrets behind this garden. Or watch the video below.
