Sussex barn with meadow

This old Sussex Barn is a public building and our brief was to create a garden for weddings and parties to be used all year round. Surrounded by large, flat bowling greens, Juliet felt that the buildings needed ‘anchoring’ with planting that reflected the original countryside that they were built for and also the centuries of English gardening tradition that have elapsed since then. The garden now attracts visitors from far afield and is loved by the local people.
