Many homeowners are keen to salvage their outdoor space but not so keen to get their hands dirty, with recent statistics revealing that 40% of people would like to spend less time maintaining their gardens . With Summer fast approaching, those looking to move into a brand-new home and save the hassle of rescuing a garden, Millwood Designer Homes’ development at Cherry Tree Lane, in Ewhurst, Surrey, have been designed by award-winning landscape architects, Murdoch Wickham.
Having previously designed two gardens for the Chelsea Flower Show, Murdoch Wickham have designed and landscaped the beautiful gardens for plots 1-8 at Cherry Tree Lane. Nestled in the picturesque Surrey village of Ewhurst, the development comprises a collection of high-specification one to five-bedroom homes in a peaceful rural setting.
Clive McDonnell, Senior Landscape Architect at Murdoch Wickham, comments: “The garden designs at Cherry Tree Lane take inspiration from the various individual house types, allowing the gardens to act as a natural extension to the spacious internal living areas. In order to maximise on space, we’ve designed the green areas to work as functional outdoor rooms, complete with seating areas for alfresco dining and quiet contemplation. We’ve carefully selected a range of planting and flowers to complement and enhance the elegant design of these homes. Choosing a range of accent plants, including beautiful summer flowers and striking autumn colours, gives the garden a welcoming feel and creates a sense of year-round visual interest.”
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Murdoch Wickham has elegantly designed eight of the gardens at Cherry Tree Lane, to offer buyers beautiful and practical flexible outside space to complement the spacious internal living accommodation. This is a fantastic opportunity for purchasers to find a low maintenance new home complete with a designed and landscaped garden. Buyers who love to take pride in their garden will be very well suited to this collection of homes, therefore we encourage those to come and visit as soon as possible.”
