Hidden Garden in Ufford

Larger Garden

During the early part of this year we were involved with designing, building and planting a garden in Ufford near Woodbridge.

This scheme was part of a wider restoration of a beautiful house in the village which included a new garden room extension.

Spliting the garden into two parts, a small, wonderfully traditional barn was adapted to create an enticing view through to a hidden garden.

The owners of the house are enthusiatic gardeners and wanted a scheme which they could spend time relaxing and working in.

An existing barn created an unusual division between the two sections of garden.  An opening though the barn was created to allow an enticing view through to the hidden garden beyond.

A curved path leads around the second, more spacious part of the garden and allows for a change to a more relaxed style.  Since these photographs were taken a new summerhouse has been installed at the far end of this part of the garden – pictures to follow

A curved path starts the route around the garden.

Within the garden a small area to grow fruit trees trained as espaliers was included.

The follwoing pictures were taking during a recent visit to see how the garden has progressed and before it was opened to the public for a charity event.

The summerhouse is now in place and proving to be a great place to sit to view the garden from a shadier aspect.
