Hurworth House, Newmarket, September. Design and Build: J Winter Landscapes Ltd

J Winter Landscapes was first contacted to view this newly purchased property in December 2011. The Hong Kong based, Australian client, was keen use this as their UK base and placed huge importance on the garden right from the beginning.

Although we focus on the construction of gardens, on this particular project J Winter Landscapes both designed and built the garden. We started the project in June 2013 and completed in September 2013.

The client was a joy to work for, putting complete trust in us to deliver a garden beyond expectations. She flew in four times to check on progress during the build and we had a lot of fun driving around the South of London tree shopping!

Often, a key element of landscape construction is to work very closely and fluidly with the builders who are responsible for the renovation and extension of the house. We understand how important this is to make sure that everything runs like clockwork and the project, in its entirety, is finished on time.

Reclaimed York stone was used throughout the garden and handmade bricks for the retaining walls. Semi-mature trees and shrubs were brought in to form the structure within the garden, with soft planting flowing through the Buxus balls in the main border.
