Hamish Moorhead Landscapes

Retreat Garden

Designed as a weekend retreat, the garden around this contemporary Martinborough home draws on the simple lines of the architecture and provides a connection between the house and its park-like surroundings. 

Clipped evergreen hedges ensure a year round back drop of greenery, and groups of specimen trees frame views across the surrounding landscape. 

The pared back planting and simple palette of materials create a restful setting around the house and keep maintenance requirements low.
