Gardens in progress: Crondall garden for Entertaining, Tennis and Bees

Not long ago, a lovely downsizing couple approached our director Paul with a precise brief for their latest property.

  • They wanted a comfortable entertaining space near the new kitchen,
  • a Summerhouse,
  • a productive Cutting Garden,
  • a croquet lawn to complement the tennis court,
  • a naturalistic planting able to fit in the landscape and support the three beehives on site.

To complement the new architecture of the house, Paul’s design for the 0.7-acre plot is contemporary in lines and materials.

Retaining walls clad in corten-looking porcelain make the most of the space, which is characterised by a significant change in levels and a very chalky soil.

A water feature provides interest and a soothing sound in the dining area.

Floating steps take to the summerhouse and the productive garden. The tennis court is softened by bee-friendly planting and multistem Acers.

With the hard landscaping almost completed, the next phase will be planting the garden with a rich palette able to provide lots of pollen, cut flowers and sustain biodiversity .
