Acres Wild Garden Design lead by Debbie Roberts and Ian Smith in West Sussex, United Kingdom are renowned for their stunning perennial country gardens. It’s no secret that we love perennial gardens and Acres Wild is a great influence of ours.
Roberts and Smith would define their philosophy as:
“Our design philosophy is to respond sensitively to our client’s needs and carefully integrate their house into the garden and the garden into its surroundings, with plants and materials appropriate to the character and location of each particular site. This philosophy permeates all our work, whether in town or country, at home or abroad.
An Acres Wild design consists of a bold underlying structure softened with full and naturalistic planting to reflect the tastes, requirements and aspirations of our clients, their homes, and the wider landscape setting.
Over the years we have gained experience with a wide range of garden situations and many diverse clients. Being located in south-east England allows us the opportunity to design gardens set anywhere from the heart of London to the coast, from downland to woodland, on free-draining chalky and acidic soils to heavy wealden clay. Whilst much of our work is carried out in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and Kent, we also work nationally throughout the UK and the Channel Islands. Recent international projects include gardens in France, Spain and California.”
