Kingsfield garden design, Baldock, Herts

Clients’ brief:

My clients have left a large family home, lived in for years and now find it’s time to downsize. After renovations to the house, it’s time to develop this new-build garden. Almost a blank canvass but with an existing greenhouse. shed and plum tree to retain. The garden is surrounded by trees and so they felt adding more trees wasn’t important, so in the planting design I have focussed on creating a gravel garden with plants that will work well in a dry environment, surrounded by stones.

The timber Gazebo gives the garden a destination from the house and of course is a great place to retreat and shelter, from sun or rain.
