Alasdair Cameron Design was asked to invigorate this garden which was tired and unruly; in addition the client asked that the design screened the new tennis court. By removing energy sapping leylandii the garden has been opened up to draw in the surrounding landscape, a curved hornbeam hedge and balancing dry stone wall screen the tennis court, in an interesting way. The introduction of a boule pitch and pergola this zone has created a games zone with a place to entertain. The atmosphere created is open and relaxed with the design delivering a low maintenance garden that stimulates interaction between the family and the outside.
By clearing trees, shrubs and leylandii the garden has been opened up allowing the house to sit comfortably in its surroundings and enjoy the encircling landscape.
An interestingly shaped hornbeam hedge and low height wall create a 'games room' within the garden whist not breaking the atmosphere of the whole.
Looking from the tennis court to the house a picture of shapes and the odd splash of colour provides balance and interest.
By creating a separate 'room' a more intimate atmosphere is created in a zone where tennis and boule can be played and people can sit, watch, relax and entertain.
