Berkhamsted garden
design 

Hertfordshire

A large family garden in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, where woodland play and stylish outdoor living go hand in hand.

This large family garden in Hertfordshire already contained some characterful old trees, in particular a statuesque oak in the middle of the lawn. Adding further trees created a woodland feel, and cocooned the house - turning the garden into a tranquil escape. 

This garden needed to perform on several levels, providing natural play space for the kids, whilst also being a sophisticated space for alfresco dining and entertaining. A contemporary swimming pool next to the house is flanked by trees whilst retaining the view to the back of the garden. Colourful prairie planting provide cut flowers and a long season of colour surrounding the deck which provides ample space for dining and cooking. 

 

 A winding path threads through meadow, culminating in a natural swimming pool at the end of the garden. The perfect place to enjoy an evening swim looking out over the Hertfordshire countryside.
