I am really excited to have been commissioned to redesign the large garden of The Crown at Aston End, a large pub located in the beautiful Hertfordshire landscape.  

The garden is almost completed now (photographed below by the talented Alexandra Davies at dawn), just a few tweaks required with planting and lighting and I’m pleased to say the very strict deadline has been met! I will be missing that drive though through the stunning fields, hills and charming hamlets which I have fallen in love with over the last two months.

This was the first time I designed a pub garden so it definitely was a learning curve, collaboration with my clients was key and I’m thankful for their input and answering all my silly questions.  Collaboration is what we’re all about and thrive on. In fact I’d like to put a call out here, collaboration work welcome here, just get in touch! I must point out though that this was particularly exciting to me as rarely do projects combine so many interests of mine: love of food, entertaining, making sure all people have a good time, views onto open countryside and…slowly roasted chicken.

A big shout out for the amazing team of contractors we’ve had the great pleasure to work with who delivered an ambitious scheme within an extremely tight timeline.
