Coastal Retreat, Sussex

A family garden

An idllylic sanctuary nestled into the Sussex coastline.

Providing a serene haven in an open East Sussex shoreline, this garden sits beautifully in its surrounding landscape.

The gentle, green hues of a carefully selected plant palette sing against the wide blue sky, whilst driftwood timbers and natural stone converse with the garden’s immediate environment.

Velvety dwarfed pines and rosemary provide soft pillows of structure, whilst daisy-flowered erigeron self-seed and tumble over natural stone steps and glaucous grasses sway in the salt-laden breezes.

A stone pathway winds around the garden, by a timber bench nestled into an abundance of lavender and on to a small terrace, which provides a comforting shelter against the prospecting elements.

This garden has a real sense of home whilst being perfectly anchored into its landscape.
