The clients wanted to create a walled garden with Mediterranean-style planting to remind them of holidays in Mallorca. A very gnarled, mature, olive tree was high on the wish list. Other requirements included a tiled loggia, a pergola and a lily pond. The garden was completed at the end of 2010 and just needs the planting to develop to soften the hard lines of the raised beds and pergola.
Location: Swanton Morley, Norfolk, NR20
Construction: Tony Hall and team.
Olive tree supplied by East of Eden Plants.
Other mature plants (Cordyline australis, Chamaerops humilis) supplied by The Romantic Garden Nursery.
Pictures taken one year after completion.
