Croft Cottage, Isle of Skye

An overgrown garden greeted the new clients of this exposed coastal cottage on Skye.Andrew was called in to produce a design in 2007 to develop this garden alongside the client’s wishes. This garden then evolved over a period of years to the present day when it now house’s a remarkable collection of plants – grouped geographically in bed’s, creating a ‘walk around the world’.This alongside a sound and practical design dealing with the severe cross-falls on the site, creating ‘rooms’ within a strong overall natural design and utilising natural materials. The whole blending into the surrounding landscape.Of course such an exposed coastal location brings together Andrew’s understanding of the natural environment and its challenges. This allied to a knowing plant knowledge created a garden of immense surprise in such a location.
