My clients garden was mainly laid to lawn with their beautiful old Kentish barn set at one end and a newly built tennis court set at the other. My brief was to create a design for the garden which would sympathetically link these two main elements to each other.
I decided to create a series of rooms enclosed with low evergreen yew hedging and full of beautiful relaxed cottage planting. These linked the barn to the tennis court finishing with an apple tree avenue under planted with wild flowers.
The rooms included a secluded courtyard by the barn with oak pergola and water feature, a scented herb garden with benches set into the planting and a circular garden with cottage planting and arches leading the way through to the apple tree avenue and wild flowers to the tennis court.
