East Portlemouth, Devon
Situated above Mill Bay sands and open to the prevailing Sou westerlies, the garden at Mill Bay house was always going to be dry and scorched. A simple division of space: A North and South lawn with a running ecology of dry gravel. Herb rich beds with a cliff top palette of plants; plus a self seeding population have allowed for a quick spirit to emerge and the naturalisation of layers to begin. Concrete free landscaping.
