Garden DEsign Journal - a modern country landscape garden, Suffolk

Suffolk landscape garden design featured in the Garden DEsign journal

14 DECEMBER 2018

Our design for Field Barn, Suffolk - a modern country landscape garden in rural Suffolk - has been featured the front cover of the January 2019 edition of the Society of Garden Designers’ magazine, the Garden Design Journal.

This feature follows news that Colm Joseph Landscape + Garden Design is a finalist in the Society Of Garden Designer Awards 2019. See more on our nominated Suffolk landscape garden design here.

This cover image shows how our design makes the most of the drama and scale of the big Suffolk skies and the client’s newly built modern architecture. Pushing out from the cantilevered gable end of Field Barn is a 25m swimming pool. Reflecting the vast East Anglian skies, the swimming pool amplifies the drama of spectacular views the local countryside. A wide-open plain of prairie-style planting relates the landscape garden to the surrounding arable fields.

The bold, crisp linearity of the architecture is continued in the garden landscaping. Contrasting this compositional order and linear geometry is highly naturalistic planting design. The planting is inspired by the Suffolk landscape and is designed as a low maintenance, sustainable and wildlife-friendly planting scheme.
