Location: North Essex, UK

Contract: 2017 to present

Project Manager & Designer: Matthew Dawson

A charming venue, nestled in the heart of the north Essex countryside. The Hare's Field is an evolving project, we assist and consult on the design, development, and maintenance of the venues garden and grounds. Our clients strong architectural and design background combined with our horticultural knowledge has formed a most wonderful and creative working relationship. Our brief here was to enhance the aged beauty of the barns with an elegant horticultural brush, in a series of mini projects on-site and in-line with the timetable for the conversion of the barns.

We consciously considered the wider landscape when devising the planting scheme, resulting in many free-flowing structured plants such as Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster' and in sharp contrast very formal structures to accent the strength of the barns with the pleached Tilia cordata.  We make weekly garden management visits to The Hare's Field, ensuring the grounds are at their best for any guest no matter the season. The challenge of providing horticultural solutions to complement the beauty of the barns and the surrounding countryside made this an immensely rewarding project to work on.

County Garden Management worked with us when our development was in its infancy, to help develop a landscaping plan that could be implemented over a number of years. As a wedding venue, the way our planting appears is key to our appeal and the original ideas and maintenance County Garden Management provide ensure our venue looks its best all year round. Working with Matt and his team is always a pleasure and their attention to detail and care is always apparent.
