Kerensa Gardens

East Hanney

Many recently built properties are sold with gardens that whilst levelled and turfed, lack any real design or features. Add to this an unusual shaped plot, and you have a space that many people would find difficult to deal with. The Client was keen to carry out the works themselves, but couldn't see how best to deal with the space.

Through a series of consultations, a design was created that worked with the shape of the space but also brought in strong lines to bring movement into the space. The accompanying planting plan was based around using a vast range of grasses along with clipped box and pencil cypress, creating a semi formal feel to the space. Pergolas and screens broke up sight lines into the house from neighbouring roads and properties. The client is installing the garden in stages, as the remodelling of a space this size is no small undertaking!
