SGD Award Finalist 2017
Our clients had a mature garden with some existing hedging and lovely specimen shrubs and trees. The garden is situated in Kings Langley in Hertfordshire, near Watford and Hemel Hempstead. The clients enjoyed their existing garden but found it rather disjointed and lacking an entertainment area and further areas of interest with their own identity. Our clients wanted a large terrace, swimming pool, pool house and an area where they could enjoy Japanese style plants.
Our solution was to design a garden with a large terrace, swimming pool and pool house outside of the main living room which was very sunny. This area was suitable for Mediterranean style plants and included some large old olive trees. From this area, steps lead to a long access the length of the 2-acre garden. Along the access you can wander over a granite bridge in the Japanese garden and continue along an avenue of Malus Evereste planted in longer grass with wildflowers. Eventually you arrive at a bespoke green oak garden building from which you can access the woodland garden or simply enjoy the Hertfordshire views!
