Built at the turn of the century from local hard chalk (or ‘clunch’), Marsh Court in Stockbridge is considered one of architect Edwin Lutyens’s most notable English country houses, and we can testify to its beauty!

In 2011, Tree Parts was commissioned by the Boston, USA based Landscape Architects Reed Hilderbrand to compose and initiate a holistic Conservation Management Plan for Marsh Court’s 47 acre garden, originally landscaped by Lutyens’s partner Gertrude Jekyll.
