The conversion of an old farmhouse into a luxury country hotel required all the exterior spaces to be adapted to this new role. A large driveway circle, built at the entrance for visitors’ cars to manoeuvre, is given a light and pleasing appearance with plantings of ornamental grasses and mixed flowers (Miscanthus, Stipa, Festuca, Verbena, Euphorbia). The garden area outside the guest bar is instead bordered with Buxus sempervirens and hydrangeas, to suit its shady position. The inner court of the hotel has a bleached wood pergola, designed in conjunction with the renovation architect, with gravel walks under the pergola and a lawn in the open central section. Planted around the base of the pergola are mixed borders of plants similar to those of the driveway circle, as well as climbers that will in time will partially cover the structure (Iceberg rose, Clematis varieties). Malus ‘Red Sentinel’ trees stand in the lawn area.
