BLUE DOORS LODGE SOUTH STOKE, ARUNDEL
A half-acre sloping garden, located within the South Downs National Park, was designed to complement a newly refurbished brick and flint house. The design is strong and modernist in character and overlaid with simple and relaxed planting to create a timeless garden that exploits the views across the Arun Valley.

GAZEBO, WEST DEAN GARDENS, CHICHESTER PO18 0RX
The gazebo sits at the Western end of a 100m pergola designed by Harold Peto in 1911, consists of a vaulted stone roof, knapped flint walls, oak windows and knapped flint and horse tooth floor. The pergola bisects the lawn and forms part of the Grade II listed park and garden. Works included a range of traditional trades by approximately 15 individuals.
RIVERHILL HOUSE PETWORTH
The owners of the 17th-century, Grade II listed cottage, wanted a garden that united the house with the stable block, annexe and barn conversion. The brief was to incorporate disparate, hidden spaces to give them a level games lawn and easier route to the swimming pool. Shrubs and a concrete sunbathing platform were removed to reveal the South Downs views.
