A landscape designer’s garden in Somerset

Posted on Mon, 20 Mar 2023 by KiM

Every now and then I come across an outdoor space that leaves me speechless and almost in tears. This Somerset garden of landscape designer Libby Russell of Mazzullo + Russell Landscape Design is 100% one of those. I honestly do not have the proper words to describe how beautiful this is. I dream of having a sanctuary like this one day when I can manage to give up city living.
A large country garden split into several garden areas. On one side of the garden, a series of terraces run uphill, including a family garden with large herbaceous borders, a kitchen garden, swimming pool garden and orchard with wildflowers. On the otherside, a contemporary amphitheatre falls down the other hillside where curved grassbanks echo the striations of the paths made by sheep over centuries on the banks of the valley beyond.
