Low Wood House, Birmingham

Low Wood is a large Grade II listed house of 1910 in a predominantly Edwardian area of Harborne. Designed by the Arts and Crafts architect E F Reynolds, it has fine well-preserved interiors and a matching circular observatory in the garden. The garden, now substantially reduced in extent with 1990s houses built on the rest, is uninspiring and a unworthy setting for the house.

A series of garden works includes new gates, a new paved terrace, garden steps, sunken pool, a rill and pergola set within the existing levels and form of the garden and its mature trees.

The first phase of the garden works comprising of a stone terrace, planters and a pool is now complete Bricks from Furness and stone from Rand and Asquith closely match the existing house and with the planting maturing, the new works provide a more worthy step from house to garden. It is to be hoped that the restoration of the observatory can begin before the weather causes more serious damage to the fabric.
