We were asked to create a lake for the owners of this large garden in East Sussex. We had built the garden of their previous house and had built up an excellent relationship with them, so were delighted to be asked to work on their new project.

The clients realised that the ground levels around the house blocked their view from the new kitchen over their new lake and asked us back to come up with ideas to solve the problem. They asked for a large paved terrace to provide an attractive, functional and interesting space for entertaining. They also wanted more water, particularly moving water to help mask the noise of a nearby main road and ways to link the new garden to the surrounding woodland.

The layout consists of a series of large paved terraces and sharply defined rectangular lawns. Two large connecting ponds on different level provide the sound of running water and also act as reflecting pools, bringing the surrounding woodland closer to the house.
