Heritage and Historic Parks and Gardens

Two members of the Sacha Barnes team have been responsible for the restoration and management of historic parks and gardens in their past careers. More recent commissions have involved the creation of new landscape areas that are in keeping with their historic landscape settings. We are passionate about local distinctiveness and will aim to capture the essence of the local landscape with a thorough understanding of heritage and cultural influence. Through the work of the charity Common Ground there is a growing interest in the restoration of old orchards and the establishment of new orchards using "Heritage Varieties".

We have contacts with a number of Heritage Fruit specialists.
