Magdalen Tennis Club Wandsworth garden works, designed by Caroline Garland, building by Eden Landscape



Garden design Magdalen Tennis Club, Wandsworth – double click on left title for garden plan

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:

Hideous paving about to come uphttps://www.carolinegarland.com/cms/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/2012-09-20-10.58.30-Small-300x168.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 853px) 100vw, 853px" />The back of the clubhouse.  Paving removed along with the shed and fencing – getting somewhere!

Two large lime trees have had to be removed as they were pushing the wall out and were about to fall down…

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!
