Pett and Pett Level

Fairlight End: Great news for local residents Chris and Robin Hutt! Fairlight End has won a Sussex Heritage Trust 2015 Award in the Landscape and Gardens category.

The judges said the garden is “A thoughtful and beautiful integration of the countryside and garden landscape with contemporary elements, such as steel borders, in an infinity style. Sculptural pieces complement the listed house and perform as plant supports. Old character trees add a timeless feel to the new plantings.”

A hand crafted slate plaque to be displayed at Fairlight End marks the Award.

Chris Hutt said “This Award, which we are proud to win, is really a tribute to all the people who have helped us to build up the garden in the 10 years we have been here.”
