Hellifield Peel

The restoration of Hellifield Peel from a ruin was documented on the TV programme Grand Designs.

Having completed the house, the owners turned their attentions to the garden and wished to create an appropriate setting for this beautiful old house, which stands in an area of old parkland.

I was asked to design the planting schemes for a traditional herbaceous border under a long wall to the back of the house, with a scheme of cream and green planting in a series of beds to the east of the house.
