Pedham Place Farm, Swanley, Kent

A modern farmhouse located at an exposed high point on the chalk downlands above Farningham. The client commissioned our Landscape Architects to create a large country garden.
The key features are:

  • Broad copses of native planting to the boundaries reducing exposure to prevailing winds and providing shelter for the new garden.
  • Framing and emphasising the panoramic views across the Darenth Valley.
  • Creating an exciting land sculpture, inspired by the rolling chalk downland and the ancient hill forts.
  • Softening the impact of a new building located at a high point on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
