The garden works started on the Magdalen Tennis Club in Wandsworth on Monday 17th September. I designed the garden, reception area and hard landscaping around the tennis courts and Adam North of Eden Landscapes is doing “the build”. At the moment we are just into very heavy clearance but I’ll post photos as it develops. Orginally the ground was tarmac with some cheap paving which was becoming unstable and cracked. The design is incorporating much softer evergreen planting and we are using Kashmir Grey paving from Silverlands which is a light grey indian sandstone. This is what it looked like and more photos will appear as time goes on:

Hard core arriving and electric channels being dug
Two large lime trees have had to be removed as they were pushing the wall out and were about to fall down…
But the trenches are in for the planting, the posts are in for the fencing and the paving slabs have arrived – big progress! I am off to the nursery today to start to check out standard trees and hedging…
So progress is really happening now – despite the various problems here are the steps and wall forming up and any minute now we’re going to be planting!
