Berkshire Manor House

Berkshire Manor House

With origins going back to the 16th Century, this stunning house sat in 26 acres on appalling thin gravel. The grounds had in fact been designed some years earlier but several of the borders close to the house lacked the wow factor that the house had and needed redesigning.

The freely drained gravel meant that the beds needed much improving before they could be planted, and several challenges including Box Blight had to be addressed. And finally whilst the clients had contractors to look after the grounds, the reality was that these were for the most part agency workers.

With the planting plan being designed by Jo Alderson Phillips, and with a stunning meadow being created to greet people driving up to the house, a truly professional transformation has taken place such that we now maintain the beds with our own dedicated maintenance manager.
