TCL was engaged by Bird in Hand to design and document a series of terraces and steps to sit seamlessly with the existing landform, the vineyards, a ruin, prominent artworks and the upper southern terrace created some years ago.

The planting incorporates loose Mediterranean-style perennial planting and deciduous trees, with hedge forms and topiary spheres providing structure, particularly in the winter months.

A large area of grass on the upper terrace allows for gatherings, while a series of elegant sawn limestone stone steps traverse down the slope to the lower sections of the site.

TCL worked closely with the client to ensure that imported soil did not contain contaminates detrimental to viniculture and that construction methods of the extensive terracing was kept within budget.

The final planting design is the result of a collaboration with the client – Susie Nugent and Virginia Kennett, both talented landscape designers.
