A private estate in a magnificently picturesque setting, Exton is place of outstanding natural beauty and an exclusive wedding venue near Oakham in Rutland.
Disguising the drainage and enhancing the water course, this rejuvenation has stone reinforced walls to its banks and a lakeside planting scheme softened with herbaceous and ornamental grasses.
The grasses and perennial varieties provide seasonal interest all year round and the addition of roses in the palette adds an extra floral and scented element for an impressive planted area.
Connecting the upper and lower ponds, the water course runs through a culvert, creating a cascade and meandering brook towards the larger lake.
Outlining the planting plan and proposing the natural flow of stonework, Keary Design selected plants suitable for the riverside aspect and at a blend of heights to mask and complement the setting.
Exton Estate has stunning views across the countryside in Rutland and makes the perfect venue for weddings and events as well as being home to farming, forestry, residential and commercial properties.
